Kitchen Policies

Access to the kitchen must be approved in advance of your event by the Student Development office. Clearly labeled items for an event can be stored in the walk in fridge, and you are welcome to use the sinks. If permitted, students may use electric hot plates to heat up food for specific events only.

Kitchen Supplies include:

  • Hot Plates (See Hot Plate Guidelines below)
  • Water Boiler
  • Microwave
  • Serving Bowls
  • Serving Utensils
  • Cutting Boards
  • Sinks
  • Ice Machine

Everything must be cleaned and left in good condition.  The stove and oven are not available for use. All supplies utilized must be left, washed, to dry by the end of your event.

Please see additional water, ice and supplies info.


Hot Plate Guidelines – Dos and Don’ts

1) DO only use on a flat, elevated surface, on the bar in Commons/Cabaret or the metal tables in the Kitchen on the C-Level. DO NOT use on tables or other plastic surfaces.

2) DO cook/heat food in metal cook ware only. DO NOT place glass dishes, aluminum foil, plastic or paper containers on the hot plate.

3) DO use caution when interacting with hot plates, and pay close attention to the red light indicator. Surfaces are hot and will remain hot for a long period of time.

4) DO alert others to use caution nearby.

5) DO clean any house cook wear and utensils and return them to storage.

6) DO NOT leave the hot plate unattended while in use or during cooling period.

7) DO NOT plug multiple hot plates in one outlet. These devices use a lot of electricity and can cause a short-circuit if plugged in at the same locations.
