Refrigerators There are a limited number of used mini-fridges available to be leased that are now owned by the school. These are available at a cost of $50 for the entire school year and on a first-come, first-served basis. Once they are all leased, students that want a fridge will have to purchase their own. Fridges left at the end of each year and not properly tagged/maintained become the property of the school. Leased mini-fridges are owned by the school and must be left in the condition received at the end of the year or an additional fine will be assessed. Refrigerators cannot be reserved in advance - they must be requested upon check-in on campus.
