My roommate and I split the cost of a fridge and microwave and she picked them up and brought them to SMC. She brought a TV. Talk with your roommate, but you really only need one microwave, one refrigerator, and one TV per room. If your roommate has one to bring, then don't buy one. I wouldn't recommend splitting the cost of a fridge a microwave, but I would coordinate that one of you brings a fridge and the other the microwave. This way at the end of the year, it's easy to know what is yours.
