What not to bring:

Microwave: The only microwaves that are allowed in the residence halls at microwaves that are attached to a MicroFridge. The study lounges on campus have microwaves, so you will be able to heat food without your own standalone unit.

Extension/octopus cords: We only allow outlets and circuits that are surge protected. Extension and octopus cords are fire hazards.

Candles/candle warmers: Anything with an open flame is not allowed in the residence halls. Additionally, candle warmers, or any other items with a hot plate, are a fire hazard and are not allowed on campus.

Portable grills: THIS INCLUDES GEORGE FOREMAN GRILLS.

Pets: The only animals allowed in the residence halls are fish in a one gallon or smaller tank.

Quarters: Part of your annual fee at Union pays for your laundry service. All washing and drying machines on campus are free.
