Microfridge Policy

microfridge-pic.pngAlthough Residence Halls are not furnished with MicroFridge units, students may rent a unit from Catawba College’s designated partner, Standards For Living.

MicroFridge is a combination appliance consisting of a compact refrigerator – freezer – microwave oven and features a patented electrical control system (SafePlug) that allows only one appliance to draw electricity at a time and is Energy Star rated. Visit www.standardsforliving.com for more information about how to acquire a unit for your room. 

Students should collaborate with their roommate to decide who will bring the microwave / refrigerator since each residence hall room is limited to one microwave oven (1.1 cubic feet or smaller) and one refrigerator (no larger than 3.0 cubic feet). Students found in violation of this policy will face disciplinary sanctions through the student conduct system that may include fines and confiscation of microwaves and refrigerators that do not comply with this policy.
