In order to satisfy the demand for refrigerators and microwave ovens, Potomac State College has approved the MicroFridge rental program. The MicroFridge unit consists of a microwave oven and a refrigerator with a separate freezer, all in one integrated unit. The MicroFridge works off one electrical cord and meets all the University’s electrical and safety requirements.

Orders placed by August 1st will be installed in the student's room prior to their arrival on campus. Orders placed after August 1st will be installed in the first two weeks of the academic term.

Why should you be interested in the MicroFridge?

1. Convenience: The MicroFridge allows students to eat what they want, when they want it. The freezer can store frozen foods – even ice cream – for extended periods, since it is a true zero-degree freezer, not a tiny ice cube area like you’ll find in typical “cube” refrigerators. The refrigerator is auto-defrosting, eliminating the chore of frequent manual defrosting. Additionally, your student will not have to squeeze it in the car at the end of the year.

2. 100% Guarantee: If your MicroFridge quits working for any reason (other than abuse), it will be immediately replaced free of charge. No long wait for service calls or sending the unit out for repairs.

3. Low Cost: The rental for a MicroFridge with a microwave for the entire academic year (August through May) is only $230.00. When splitting costs with a roommate, you cut the cost in half.

4. Safety: The MicroFridge has patented circuitry built in which prevents blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers, and also reduces energy consumption.
