MicroFridge Rental: My MicroFridge


My MicroFridge is DePaul Housing’s approved vendor for MicroFridge rentals! If you don’t know what a MicroFridge is, it’s a fridge, freezer, and microwave combo unit that is specially designed for residence hall rooms. A MicroFridge comes with features such as a built-in smoke detector to shut off the microwave in case food (especially popcorn) starts to burn, as well as additional built-in electrical and USB outlets.

My MicroFridge offers MicroFridge rentals for the academic year, and they deliver the day before your scheduled move-in appointment and pick up from your room at the end of Spring Quarter. Roommates can share the cost and avoid the expense and hassle of purchasing, transporting, and storing a separate microwave and separate mini fridge. 

Students with questions about their MicroFridge rental may call My MicroFridge at 1-800-525-7307. For more information, visit the My MicroFridge website. ​
