There are two types of dorm-sized refrigerators. The smaller size measures about 20 inches in height and has a capacity of 1.7 to 1.8 cubic feet. Larger dorm fridges range from 30 to 34 inches in height and have a storage capacity of 3 to 4 cubic feet on average.
Dorm fridges come in a variety of colors and styles. Some smaller fridges have a small freezer compartment, while others have more space dedicated to the freezer. It is also possible to get dorm fridges that have no freezer space at all. For many students the extra fridge space is more useful than the freezer space.
