Renting a MicroFridge

Has anyone rented one of these? Has anyone bought one? I would really like to have the little microwave in my room, so this will work better for me than just a fridge. Any insight would be appreciated!

    I rented one at my first college....it was certainly convenient to have b/c I was an athlete and so I had to make my dinners in my room quite often.

    We rented one last year (D's first year) and may very well rent one again this year. It was OK. A bit beat up, but it worked-- well, she told us recently that the microwave part never worked. Wish we had known that earlier....

    Anyway, it's well worth not having to lug it up and down stairs and try to find a place to put it for the summer (we live in a small NYC apartment). You can rent it through your school. Interesting, the price of it changes depending on the school you go to...

    I have been thinking about this too. We were thinking about buying one, because even though they are expensive, my incoming freshman might use it for 2 years and then I will have another daughter ready for college (if the fridge lasts that long!). Just a lot of money to shell out right now!! But probably worth it in the long run!

    The school I went to last year provided a microfridge unit in the room free of charge... when I used it I was glad I had it, but honestly I never really did use it that much. Probably will not get it.

    the microfridge is soo much smaller...

    there's a microwave in every dorm kitchenette so using that one shouldnt be a problem...

    don't rent, its expensive and a lot of people don't even use it much.

    if you really need it just buy a new one,

    i am going to bump this because i want to know how spacy the fridge and freezer and microwave are on those microfridges.

    the freezer how many lean cuisines can it hold? lol
    can the microwave pop regular popcorn bags or MINI BAGS only? do lean cuisines fit?
