POL - 40.08.2 Residential Life Appliance Policy
Effective Fall 2021, North Carolina Central University Residential Life will no longer provide micro-fridge units in the corridor or suite-style rooms in Annie Day Sheppard, Baynes, Chidley North, Eagleson, George Street, Lawson Street, McLean, New Residence II, Richmond, and Ruffin residence halls. If residents want to have a refrigerator in their room, they have two options:
- Option 1: Students may bring their own mini-refrigerators (not to exceed 4.5 cubic feet). We encourage all students who decide to bring their own refrigerator to purchase EnergyStar-rated refrigerators. Students are also permitted to bring their own microwave that does not exceed 900 watts. EnergyStar-rated appliances can be purchased at any major retailer, including Best Buy, Home Depot, and Lowes.
- Option 2: Students may rent a micro-fridge from our partners at Collegiate Concepts, Inc. In order to guarantee pre-delivery of your unit to your room before you arrive, please order before Monday, July 26, 2021, or a late fee of $25.00 will be added to your order. You can order through collegefridge.com/nccu. You can also call Collegiate Concepts at 515-597-2303 to place an order with a representative.
Microwaves and Air Fryers
Microwaves are provided in Alston Avenue and Martha Street Apartments. Students residing in Annie Day Sheppard, Baynes, Chidley North, Eagleson, George Street, Lawson Street, McLean, New Residence II, Richmond, and Ruffin residence halls will have 24-hour access to community microwaves. The MicroFridge unit contains the only microwave allowed in residence hall rooms and suites. At the same time, microwaves are available in common areas for student use 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Air fryers are only permitted in apartments with kitchenettes and kitchens (Alston Avenue, Eagle Landing, and Martha St Apartments only). However, convection and toaster ovens are prohibited in all residence halls. Air fryers can only be used and stored in the kitchen area of the apartment.
