    I was wondering whether or not to take a mini fridge for my room? Is this allowed (think I read somewhere it's not :/). If not then what will happen if I do? Will I get into a lot of trouble? Is it easy to hide or will I get caught?

    I just want to avoid any issues regarding missing food etc. only gonna have around £20 a week budget :'( so I can't afford to have food being taken without my permission... Giving me anxiety thinking about it lol.

    It's not allowed but that doesn't mean nobody does it. I found I had adequate room in the fridge. Usually you can take a shelf each in the fridge so it's obvious who different food belongs to. Nobody will like people that steal other people's food so you won't be alone if you need to confront them about it. Having said that it's not happened to me except a bit of milk if someone's run out or something. Hope that helps.

    Ah thanks. I think I'll just wait and see what flat mates I get, food stealing hopefully won't be a problem :-)
