Students are permitted to have small (mini) refrigerators but they assume responsibility for any damages caused by the use of a refrigerator (e.g., carpet or other damages from leaking water, etc.). Students living in all residences, except HCA, should defrost their refrigerator often, and are required before Winter Break begins to remove all perishables from, defrost, clean, dry, and disconnect their refrigerators. Students living in HCA do not have to defrost the refrigerators, as they are self-defrosting.
Refrigerators may not be placed in public areas, with the sole exception of in-suite common rooms. Refrigerators found in public places will be removed by Housekeeping and the owners will be fined $50.00. Refrigerators left after the College closing at the end of the academic year will result in an additional $25.00 fee to the owner, for a total of $75.00. The College assumes no liability for damages to or loss of removed refrigerators.
