Open Heating Elements

Any appliance or device typically used at home or in an office environment that has an open heating element and does not have an automatic shutoff feature is prohibited. Common items in this category are: hot plates; toaster ovens and electric woks.

You may bring small countertop appliances (i.e. coffeemakers, toasters, crock pots, rice cookers, tea boilers, etc.) that do not disrupt the academic environment, have an automatic shut-off feature engaged at all times, and meet the approval of your RA and/or CC. These kitchen-type appliances may only be used in units with kitchens, and are prohibited from use in bedrooms.
