Welcome to the University of Nebraska at Kearney residence halls! To make your room a little more like a “home away from home”, the Office of Residence Life is offering on-campus students the opportunity to lease a MicroFridge® multi-appliance refrigerator/microwave unit.

With a MicroFridge®, you can choose to have cold drinks, snacks, frozen dinners, hot meals and even ice cream right in your room. No more late night trips to convenience stores, raids on the vending machines or telephone calls to the pizza delivery place. Thousands of students across the country have made the MicroFridge® the most popular rental appliance available. And now it is available to you!

Academic Year Rental Cost is $125.00

Spring Semester Only Rental Cost is $62.50

Why rent from us?

  • LOW COST. When splitting costs with your roommate, the rental of a MicroFridge® unit is a fraction of the cost of buying. And you don't even have to jam it in your car with all of your other belongings! Your MicroFridge® unit will be delivered directly to your residence hall room.
  • 100% GUARANTEE. If your MicroFridge® unit quits working for any reason, we replace it free of charge immediately. No waiting for service or sending it away to be repaired.
  • Any profits from rentals will directly benefit you as they are reinvested in the residence halls.
  • The MicroFridge® multipliance features a 2.1 Cu. ft. auto-defrost refrigerator, a separate door REAL FREEZER that keeps ice cream, ice cubes and frozen foods truly frozen and a 600 watt microwave oven with a turntable. MicroFridge® units are nearly new and are in good condition.
