well basically i will be sharing a kitchen with 12-13 people. and i'll most likely have a separate diet from everyone else. (i;'l be eating 6 + meals a day/cooking my on specific meals- gym related)

i was wondering if anyone uses a mini fridge in their room, and i would appreciate it if you can tell me where i can buy cheap mini fridges with decent space or post a link.

I was told that you weren't allowed them, I'm confused. :confused:
Are they allowed to have them or not? or does it just depend on the university?

Lots of hall accommodation don't allow mini fridges because they use up a lot of electricity and are quite dangerous as they overheat without proper ventilation. You best ask in your relevant uni subforum whether they lenient with mini fridges before investing in one.

And yes a most of them are tiny and barely fit a few beers in, let alone a 6 meal plan every day.

This.. but.. they often don't actually care and won't do anything about it.

Check your accomodation contract. Every university is different.

Most places will say you're not allowed them, however they have to give notice of room checks etc so you can just pop it in a box or something if anyone's due to check.

I have a mini fridge in my room already (at home, I'm going to university in September), and to be honest, it tends to keep things quite cool even when it's not switched on, I just wanted to take it for more storage and to hide things from flat mates. There's also the debate about the kettle as well. People tell me that kettles aren't allowed. I'll have to check all this out on the university forums.

In my halls mini fridges are against the terms and conditions. On the other hand, they also give me several weeks notice before entering my room.

Not always against terms and conditions - my friend got given a mini fridge BY her uni after making numerous complaints that people stole her food.

In my halls they provide a mini-fridge with the room :cool:

In other news, saying you require 6 meals a day for gym-related reasons makes you sound like a tool.

to gain muscle you need to eat properly, i have a small appetite so i eat 6 smaller meals a day. just because i'm committed doesn't make me a tool, i would appreciate it if you just stayed on topic lol, but thanks i guess

i never said i was going to put 6 meals into the mini fridge. if i have to got into detail so be it.

my meal plan goes something like this.

meal 1: 3-4 eggs, 3 toast, 500ml of milk , oats and whey(fridge isn't needed)
meal 2: 100g of peanuts - (again fridge isn't needed)
meal 3: pasta and mince meat(i cook so it lasts me a couple days-mini fridge needed)
meal 4: can of tuna(fridge isn't needed)
meal 5: same as meal 3(mini fridge needed)
meal 6. peanut,nutella sandwich(no fridge needed)

the mini fridge is mainly for eggs and cooked pasta/mince meat i don't want people stealing it during the night otherwise i won't reach my daily macros.

God help anyone who steals any of my food when I go this September. I take my food seriously. And I am not a nice man when angered.
