Do UCLA dorms have shared microwave/electric water heater?

ZZZBTTTZZZBTTT 1 replies1 threadsRegistered User New Member
Will be attending UCLA this fall and is wondering if dorms provide shared microwave/electric water heater. Kinda worried about my instant noodles lol... (BTW I live in Hitch so if you know something specific about Hitch, please tell me!)

Some details: What I am thinking is, UCLA says we must rent from www.collegiateconcepts.net to have a microwave in our room. This offer (a two-door fridge and a microwave) costs like around $250 a year, but a two-door fridge only costs like $120 on Amazon (and, they are BOUGHT, so could be used for multiple years). I am thinking buying from Amazon is a much better deal if dorms provide shared microwave anyway... Is it right?

    This is what they say:
    UCLA regulations require students to use the MicroFridge combination appliance, Refrigerator/true zero degree freezer & Microwave oven, as the only option to have a Microwave oven in your residence hall room. Thanks! GO BRUINS!

    Used my own fridge in the dorms. Didn’t have any other appliances. Doubt you’ll need instant noodles like you mentioned with the meal plan. The meal plan food is amazing and there’s plenty of it

    My son thought he didn't need a microfridge, but since we already had one we brought it anyway. He used it mainly for cold drinks and now definitely wants to have it again this year.
