Mini fridge and/or microwave in catered halls?

Does anyone know if you can have a mini fridge and/or a microwave in your room if you lived in a catered hall? Like St. John’s for example?

It generally depends on your university: if they allow it in self-catered rooms they probably would for catered, but it can be quite rare. I'd recommend emailing Admissions/the helping for accommodation (you can find that on the uni website), and they can tell you for sure.

Unsure if you mean York St John's or St John's Durham, but for the latter Mini Fridges (and presumably microwaves) aren't allowed, unless you have a medical reason. As said though, it's easy to email the uni, and get accurate information :smile:.
Hope that helps! Wishing you luck :biggrin:

Hiya

Colleges wouldn't usually allow microwaves but mini-fridges could be allowed if only you have a medical reason (this is definitely the case for St. Johns). Still, it'd be best to contact the specific college directly and confirm :smile:

You will probs have a pantry in your halls which will have the a microwave and mini fridge.

my son is in Trevs, which is catered and there is a newly fitted kitchen on his landing, with kettle, fridge, microwave and even a cooker. So you can cook your own food if you wish, so no need for anything in your room
