No; fire regulations prohibit the use of extension cords in all Residence Life and Housing facilities. Extension cords may be confiscated by staff, and students using them may be fined.
Per our Guide to Community Living,
Only Underwriter’s Laboratories (UL) approved power strips with an on/off switch and surge protection are allowed. All other electrical extensions (i.e. unapproved extension cords, outlet splitters, plug-in air fresheners, etc.) will be confiscated and students will be fined. (p. 18)
Additionally, please note that refrigerators should be plugged directly into wall outlets without the use of a power strip.
