Refrigerators and Microwaves

One refrigerator, one microfidge, or one refrigerator/microwave combination is allowed per room. Refrigerator/microwave combinations and microfridges must be equipped with a power allocator or be plugged into an overload protector that limits the total amperage used by both appliances to 10 amps or less. Any damage to the residence hall or its furnishings resulting from a refrigerator, microfridge, or refrigerator/microwave combination will be billed to the student(s) responsible for the appliance.

Ithaca College students often find it convenient to rent a refrigerator or microfridge from the Refrigerator Leasing Company that services Ithaca College. It is one way to be certain that the appliance meets Ithaca College's size and electrical standards.

If you choose to bring a microfridge or refrigerator/microwave combination, be advised that you must show documentation that it meets the specific power, size, and electrical operating specifications published as the Microfridge Checklist by the Department of Environmental Health and Safety.
