Student Care Packages
Elon University Care Package Program Share your love and support all year long with the Elon University care package program. A care package is the best way to remind your student that Mom and Dad are thinking of them on a birthday, a holiday, and during final exams. A care package says it all.
For years, Elon University has been offering the care package program to every student. We know the perfect time to send each package throughout the semester, just when your student really needs a boost.
Our goal, this year, is to ensure that every student receives at least one care package.
Your student is practically guaranteed to call home and say thank you when their package arrives. We offer a wide variety of options that will fit any budget and satisfy your student's cravings. We even have gluten-free and peanut-free packages to choose from.
Here are some of the most popular care packages we can arrange for your student:

Valentine's Care Package
Birthday Cake or Care Package
Midterms Care Package
Final Exams Care Package

Purchasing a Microfridge
MicroFridge - A microwave and refrigerator all-in-one waiting for you in your room for $160.00 (+7.75% tax). These uniquely designed units are the only microwaves allowed in the residence halls (except in kitchenette space in the Danieley Center). Refrigerator/freezer volume is 2.9 cu.ft.
MicroFridge units ordered before August 1st, will be placed in rooms before students arrive on campus, including Early Arrivals, First-Year Students Arrival on August 23rd, and Upper Class Students Arrival on August 24th. (Please note that Early Arrivals are only permitted if students are arriving with a particular group or organization.)
MicroFridge units ordered after August 1st, will be placed in rooms on a first-come first-served basis, in the order in which they are received. MicroFridges will be available for order through August.
Elon will not issue MicroFridge rental refunds once the academic year has begun, August 27th. Residents who move or leave Elon are responsible to resolve any problems that arise with their roommate concerning their MicroFridge rental.
This fee is non-refundable once the academic year has begun. Residence life does not mediate any conflict that may arise between roommates in regards to this unit. In addition, if students participate in study abroad, they are responsible for contacting Amy Vaughn, 336.278.7316, to make arrangements for the MicroFridge unit to be removed during the room check-out process. No refunds will be issued for study abroad participants or withdrawals.
Microfridge orders have been temporarily taken offline due to inventory depletion.
Purchasing a Carpet
Most of the rooms at Elon University are not carpeted. Habitat for Humanity has made arrangements with Residence Hall Carpets for you to pre-order a carpet and have it waiting for you in your room when you arrive on campus – no need to lug all that extra weight from home! Carpets are first-quality, plush, meet all residential fire and safety requirements and are bound on all four sides. Plus, we’re able to offer you a student discount, and proceeds from the program go to Habitat for Humanity. Please visit our website http://www.rhcarpets.com/elc for more information about recommended sizes and pricing and to place your order.
Phone Service – A hall phone is available in each residence hall or common area for emergencies and on-campus dialing. To make long distance calls, a student may take advantage of one or more of the following options:
Prepaid phone cards (available for purchase in the book store and at various merchants)
Calling cards (offered by various long distance providers)
