Kitchen facilities including a refrigerator, sink, microwave and/or oven are available in each hall for the preparation of food. Students should remain in or near the kitchen facilities when food is cooking and make sure that the facilities have been cleaned after each use. Some traditional residence hall desks have cooking supplies available for check-out. When students have finished with these, they should be returned in their original condition. While students are allowed to keep food in common area kitchens, the risk of doing so is entirely theirs; moreover, students are expected to consume only that food which belongs to them.
