Do I need to bring a microwave and/or refrigerator?
The safety and comfort of residents require the careful and balanced use of electrical appliances. The University of Cincinnati’s practice is to provide one combination microwave-refrigerator (“microfridge”) in every room or suite. The policy states:
Additional microwaves, refrigerators, or microfridges are prohibited in Calhoun, Dabney, Daniels, and Siddall Halls due to the electrical capabilities of those residence halls. Residents who, for medical circumstances, need to request an exception to this policy should direct their request, in writing, to the residence coordinator (RC) of their residence hall. In the case of approved exceptions, no additional refrigerator may exceed 4.0 cubic feet, and no additional microwave may exceed 600 watts.
In Turner, Schneider, and Campus Recreation Center (CRC) Halls, one additional microwave per suite is permitted. The microwave may not exceed 600 watts. Within the suites of these halls, one small refrigerator per bedroom is permitted, regardless of how many residents are assigned to that bedroom. Any additional refrigerator may not exceed 4.0 cubic feet.
Please remember, residents are responsible for the cleaning of all microfridges, microwaves, and refrigerators in their rooms or suites throughout the term of their housing agreement.
