MICRO- AND MINI- FRIDGES ADDED TO RESIDENCE HALLS
of Cougar Village and Moody Towers are enjoying an added bonus
this semester with the addition of micro- and mini- fridges in
their rooms. A micro-fridge was installed in each Moody Towers
room, and Cougar Village residents received a mini-fridge at the
beginning of the semester.
Residents formerly brought their own refrigerators and
microwaves for their rooms when they moved into the facilities.
However, this year they received this extra amenity and
convenience at no additional cost to them. Also, supplying these
appliances in the rooms will reduce the amount of stress on the
electrical system in both buildings.
The micro-fridges installed in Moody Towers are a combination
appliance that includes a microwave oven plus a refrigerator
with a separate freezer. The units have Safe Plug technology
which prevents electrical circuits in the residence halls from
overloading. Residents in Cougar Village received the same
refrigerator unit minus the microwave. The refrigerators have a
total volume of 2.9 cubic feet.
Many residents wish to have a refrigerator and microwave in
their rooms in order to keep a few of their favorite snacks and
drinks on hand. Seante Johnson, a resident assistant in Moody
Towers and junior hotel restaurant management major, said she
went to culinary school before coming to the University of
Houston so she is particular about the food that she eats. She
said having a small refrigerator in her room allows her to stock
the foods she prefers.
“I love it. It makes it convenient to have food whenever I want
it and I didn’t have to buy a fridge and microwave. And it fits
everything,” said Johnson.
