The Health Center providers are required to approve all students requesting a refrigerator in their residence hall rooms. The residence halls can only accommodate a limited number of refrigerators due to the additional electrical load. For that reason we need to carefully screen all refrigerator requests to ensure that those students who have a true medical condition are allowed to have refrigerators in their rooms.

Please provide a letter from your treating physician on office letterhead stating the following:

  • Statement verifying a medical necessity for a refrigerator
  • Medical diagnosis that supports a need for a refrigerator
  • Medication and dosage required to treat the medical condition
  • Any pertinent medical information that supports the need for a refrigerator

Please understand the final decision will be made by one of our medical providers. If you have questions regarding this matter please contact the Health Center at (757) 727-5315.
