They are not available. However, are common fridges and microwaves for everyone to use in every dorm. If you want your own in your dorm room, then yes, you would have to purchase them.
There are two community kitchens in the building that’s each on the second and third floor and at the corner of each floor.
The following freshman halls have kitchens with a stove top:
- Freshman Five (Bray, Hall, Cary, Crocket, Nugent)
- Davison & Nugent
- Quad (each stack has a kitchen on the first floor with a stove and oven)
You can rent a fridge through RPI’s vendor. That being said, a mini fridge by itself to rent is $120 and a mini fridge with a microwave on top is $220. The cost to purchase a standard mini fridge at Walmart is $90-120 and the cost to purchase a microwave is $60. In total, that would be about $180 and you would own the two items instead of renting for $220 and only for a year.
In their kitchen is a stove, oven and a fridge. I believe there is a microwave, but RPI does not guarentee that. While living in Davison or Nugent, you get access to the basement of Sharp, which also has a kitchen that might have a microwave.
Yes you can bring a blender.
Yes to all of those.
