Are Air Fryers Permitted in Your College Dorm?

I literally just got off the phone with my daughter and she was frantic! She had just finished making her dinner in her new air fryer and since there is no oven in her college dorm, she asked me how long she should heat it up. I told her until it’s steaming hot…but then she started telling me about some of the posts on a Facebook page and how one reader said that they were not supposed to use their air fryer in the college dorms. I figured this was something I should look into so you don’t have any surprises when you go back to school/college this fall or anytime after that!

Permitted at most colleges & universities: microwave ovens, hot pots (electric tea kettles), coffee makers, toasters, George Foreman grills.

Permitted at some colleges & universities: instant hot water machines for making ramen noodles or coffee in the dorm room, personal fondue pots.

Not permitted in college dorm rooms: anything that uses a heating element or motorized parts when plugged into an electrical outlet unless it’s been tested & approved by campus’ facilities department.

Because of the fire hazards involved with the use of air fryers when placed too close to things like paper towels or napkins when heated up in the dorm room, my daughter has made her own version of an air fryer using a stainless steel bowl inside a microwave oven – one of her friends has one and she loves it!

So, since not all colleges and universities allow the use of air fryers in college dorm rooms because of electrical safety reasons, I suggest that you contact your school’s facilities department for more details. They may be willing to test out an air fryer for possible future use by other students, but at this time they are unsure if they will approve it or not. Each school is different so you need to ask them what their policy is regarding air fryers. This will avoid any problems when you get settled into your new dorm room on campus…and hopefully give you enough time to buy one before classes start up again!!! Good luck! 🙂
