Students are permitted to bring small, compact sized refrigerators with no separate freezer compartments (maximum size of 5 cubic feet) to all residences. The Department of Residences reserves the right to inspect any permitted appliances for safety reasons and ask for them to be removed based on their age and/or condition.
Traditional Style Residences: A history of problems, including fire alarms, associated with students cooking and using other appliances in residence bedrooms and lounges has resulted in restrictions on the appliances that residents of DeCew, Vallee, Earp and Lowenberger may bring to residence. DeCew, Vallee, Earp and Lowenberger students are not permitted to bring their own cooking/food preparation appliances (including freezers) into the traditional style residences. This includes but is not limited to coffeemakers and blenders. Basic appliances (microwaves and kettles) are provided for student use in many common areas.
Townhouse Style Residences: Village and Quarry View residents must store and use cooking appliances only in kitchens. Small freezers (maximum size of 7 cubic feet) are permitted in townhouse residences only, and only in the kitchen, front vestibule or storage area on non carpeted surfaces. In all cases, residents are advised to exercise care and good judgment in the use of permitted appliances, and should never leave any cooking appliance unattended while it is operating.
Space heaters are not permitted in any residence, this includes fans with a heater function. (unless provided by the Department of Residences due to maintenance issues). Non-Brock issued space heaters will be confiscated if found.
