Microwaves - The only microwaves allowed in student rooms are those included in the "micro-fridge" compact combination (refrigerator/freezer/microwave) units. These units may be rented or purchased through a UCI endorsed company, Collegiate Concepts, Inc. Information packets will be sent to residents by College Concepts Inc. in late August. You may also visit
for more information and to order a micro-fridge. To ensure delivery prior to moving in we encourage you to sign up by mid-September. Orders may also be made up to and during move-in weekend. If both or all roommates order a micro-fridge, additional contracts will be canceled and the students will be notified.
Please note: Microwaves and refrigerators are available in the hall kitchens. Refrigerators in individual rooms are permitted if they are UL-approved and not larger than 4.3 cubic feet. Electrical cooking appliances are permitted only in kitchen areas. Information regarding renting a "Micro-Fridge" (combination microwave, refrigerator and freezer) for your room can be found at
