Appliances (Allowed items)

UHDS does allow some appliances in the living groups. It is an expectation that all appliances used in the halls or coops are undamaged and have no alterations. Many of the appliances listed below may be stored or used in the living groups under certain conditions. Misuse of appliances may result in loss of privileges and conduct action.

*  Reminder:  Residents may not cook food in their room.  Heating water or brewing coffee is allowed provided the fire detection system is not activated.  Activation of the fire system, such as a smoke detector, even if on accident may result in disciplinary action by the University and the Corvallis Fire Department.  For safety purposes, the smoke detectors are sensitive.
