Appliances & MicroFridge Rentals
Bucknell does not provide appliances like microwaves or mini-fridges for single and double rooms assigned to first-year students and sophomores. You can coordinate with your roommate and bring your own appliances or rent a MicroFridge — an appliance with both functions — through the Campus Specialties website.
Once you have your current housing assignment including room number and building name, you can place your order. Campus Specialties will deliver the unit directly to your room and remove it after you move out at the end of the spring semester. You just need to clean it out and unplug the unit when you move out.
If you want extra protection for your personal property, whether you are on campus or studying abroad, consider purchasing the College Plus Insurance plan. Their 24/7 plan protects you against theft; damages from accidents, burglary, fire, water or natural disasters like floods and earthquakes.
The plan covers computers, laptops and personal devices including tablets, smartphones and audio players. It also covers school books, clothes, bicycles, musical instruments, and sporting goods.
