Student Fridges

College Owned Fridges

There are a limited number of quiet, low energy, leak proof fridges available to hire for £2 per week. In order to apply for a fridge, students need to complete and return a fridge application form from the Porters’ Lodge and then return it to the Conference pigeon hole at the Porters’ Lodge. Forms are available from Monday 03 October 2016 and fridges are allocated on a first come, first served basis, with priority given to students with medical or religious reasons (confirmed by the College nurse). Deadline of applications is the 10th of October.

Student Owned Fridges

If you wish to bring your own fridge into you room, you must complete and return a fridge application form from the Porters’ Lodge and then return it to the Conference/Accommodation pigeon hole in the Porters’ lodge. In addition you have to ensure that the fridge is placed on a waterproof tray and that it has been PAT tested. A £50.00 refundable deposit charge will be added to your College account. This is to cover the cost of disposal in the event that your fridge may be left on College premises after your departure. If you are an undergraduate, fridges may be left clean, empty and switched off over the Christmas and Easter vacation at your own risk. Cleaning charges will apply for all fridges left dirty. All fridges must be removed over the summer vacation.
