Mini-fridge for your UCSC room

September 2, 2014

Living on campus is a unique experience and we look forward to having you as part of the on-campus community this year. As you and your roommates begin discussing your living arrangements and what you'll need to make the space your own, please consider these two great resources if you (and your roommates) are planning to have a mini-fridge and microwave in your room.

MicroFridgeWe've partnered with Collegiate Concepts, Inc., for the popular Micro-Fridge combination appliance and their rental program. The compact MicroFridge® is energy star rated, has a true freezer with separate door, and features a low voltage charging station that allows you to charge cell phone and other low voltage electronics. This is a popular feature as it increases the number of available outlets in the room. MicroFridge® is not available in stores. The simplest way to order is to go to the secure website at to place your order. Place a rental order with Collegiate Concepts by September 12th and have the MicroFridge® delivered to your room before you move in.

For those interested in purchasing their own mini-fridge or microwave, the UCSC Bay Tree Bookstore is your convenient on-campus resource.

Whether you plan to rent or buy, coordinate with your roommate(s) to insure there are not multiple refrigerators in the room. This will save you time, energy, and money, and will help you make the best use of space in your room!
