Can You Take a Lava to College?

Can you take lava to college - blog

A Lava® lamp is a necessity for most heading to college! Spencer’s just named us one of the top 5 essentials for college dorms. We see a lot of talk about taking Lava® lamps to decorate dorm rooms. Mostly, there are no dorm policies against using Lava® lamps. Be sure to check your dorm’s policies, just to be sure.

Lava Lamps DO NOT Use halogen bulbs. Many Colleges do not allow any lamps with halogen bulbs. Halogen does get much hotter than the standard appliance sized bulbs that our lamps take.

We recommend using Lava® lamps for periods of 8 hours. They do get warm and need a break. They won’t cause a fire, but they might start the lava in your lamp flowing in little dot patterns instead of big oozing wax which circulates the globe. If you do this continually – you might ruin your lava lamp globe, then you would be sad. It might be a good idea to bring a timer if you are studying all night – its one less thing to worry about.
