Appliances and Linens

Residence Hall Appliances and Linens

Campus Life Housing partners with two providers of in-room amenities for microwaves, refrigerator/microwave combination units, and linens. Information specific for the fall and spring semesters are available by clicking the links below, via direct mailings to you and via the Student Affairs Newsletter that is sent in the summer and during the mid-year break.

Microwaves and Microfridges

Campus Specialties Inc. is Arcadia University’s combination microwave/refrigerator provider. As most returning student spaces within our housing system (Oak Summit Apartments) provide a full-size refrigerator and freezer, renting a refrigerator or combination unit can be a good option for most first-year students. CSI also provides microwave only options for rentals. All units are available for one or both semesters. Visit for more information about products and pricing. 

Due to insurance policy, only microwaves from CSI are approved for use within the traditional residence halls. No microwaves are permitted in the Castle, including those rented via our contracted provider.

Linens and Storage Items

Our Campus Market (OCM) is the provider of linens, storage, and other items for Residence Hall living. All items are shipped directly to you at their AU address. This is a wonderful option for students traveling from a distance. 

Given the agreement Arcadia University has with these companies, Campus Life Housing receives a percentage of all purchases that is utilized for programming for students.
