It’s hard enough choosing the right college, but when selecting dorm refrigerators, the process is much easier. It begins with determining exactly how much storage space you need. Your choices will come down to either a compact refrigerator or a compact cube which vary greatly in their storage capacity.
Compact cube dorm refrigerators typically ranges from 1.5 – 2.7 cubic feet of storage space with a very small compartment for ice trays (that are usually not frost free and will periodically need to be defrosted as ice can build up over time.
The storage space available in a compact dorm refrigerator typically runs from 2.5 to 10 cubic feet of storage space.
Some of these refrigerators come with separate door freezers making them look like a top freezer refrigerator and others even come with automatic factory installed ice makers.
These types of refrigerators are often called midsize or counter height refrigerators. A hotel mini bar fridge is right in this range for example.
Make sure to check the specific sizes that your university allows so that you don't end up with the wrong size and have to return it.
Dorm refrigerators are now available in a broader choice of colors than in years past. Most of these refrigerators come in black, white, or stainless steel. But, manufacturers are starting to realize the benefit in breaking away from the boring palate of typical colors.
Haier in particular is getting really creative having come up with a pink one (the Haier America C-RNU1708PK to be exact) as well as one that has a dry erase finish that allows you to write notes on it for yourself or your roommate (the Haier Write Fridge).
