Shopping for Dorm Appliances Tip...

LIVE DORM SMART TIP:  The general rule of thumb students should use when buying appliances for their dorm room is this:

DO BUY appliances for your dorm room that are small in scale and can operate on a 110/120v plug. This information should be available on the products' packaging. Bottom line, buy dorm sized appliances.

DO NOT BUY any appliances with an open flame or open coil for your dorm room. Meaning, leave your hot plates and toasters at home. The majority of colleges and universities do not allow these appliances on campus as they consider them fire hazards. Additionally, electric skillets are generally frowned upon, anything where a piece of paper could touch it and catch fire. As for irons and coffeemakers, stick with quality auto shutoff products.

Always check your university or college housing regulations before buying dorm appliances. If you are confused, call DormSmart at 1-877-616-DORM and we'll contact them for you! You can also check our Housing Connector to see your school's policies.

Live Dorm Smart!
