MicroFridge© and the SafeConcepts©

As a fundraiser, and as a convenience for you, we have partnered with Collegiate Concepts, Inc (CCI) to exclusively provide CSULB residence hall students with the MicroFridge and the SafeConcepts electronic safe exclusively for a number of reasons: superior product, commitment to service, reasonable cost and satisfaction guarantee. In addition, part of the proceeds from each rental or sale goes directly to the Residence Hall Association so that we can plan additional fun activities for you next year.

The MicroFridge consists of a microwave oven and a refrigerator with separate freezer. The true zero degree freezer can store frozen food. And yes, it is Energy Star rated.

The electronic safe allows you to store your valuables such as your wallet/purse, digital camera, cell phone and most importantly, your laptop computer. The unique design allows you to charge your electronic devices while stored in the safe.
