Can I purchase or rent a mini-fridge for my room?
Yes! Kenyon partners with Collegiate Fridge to rent micro-fridges to students. The unit has 2.9 cubic feet total storage capacity, including a freezer and a 600-watt microwave. This eco-friendly unit is a convenient alternative to bringing a refrigerator from home. Students may preorder their micro-fridge and have it delivered before move-in day. Quantities are limited, Place your order at http://www.collegiatefridge.com/.
If you would like to purchase a mini-fridge, the freezer should be around 1.4 cubic feet and the refrigerator should be around 3.5 cubic feet. If you have a roommate, it is recommended that you communicate with each other any plans to bring or rent a fridge.
How long are the beds?
The beds in all College residences are 80 inches long. Students will need twin extra-long sheets.
How much space is under the bed?
The beds are somewhat adjustable—12 to 28 inches. All beds are able to be lofted and bunked.
Can I move in before official move-in day?
If you are playing a fall sport, you may move in to your fall assignment on the day determined by your coach. If you are taking part in the pre-orientation program, you may move in on the date your sponsor has communicated to you. All requests to move in earlier should be directed to your coach or sponsor. Students who attempt to move in early without approval may incur financial and/or judicial sanctions.
Do you have suggestions for move-in day?
Yes! Check out the Dean's top ten tips to reduce stress on move-in day.
How do I ship to Kenyon?
Check out information on shipping packages or mailing.
Can I bring a portable air conditioning unit if I install it myself?
No. It is against College policy to have air conditioning units or large appliances. The electrical outlets cannot support them.
If I bring a television, is cable available?
No. Cable is not available in first-year residence halls. In upperclass housing areas, very few residences are able to have either cable or a satellite dish; most are unable. Large televisions can take up a lot of space, so if bringing one, it is wise to discuss this with your roommate beforehand.
