If you were willing to live in a place where an electrical overload
caused a fire (as opposed to tripping a circuit-breaker or blowing a
fuse), you have not correctly identified your worst problem, or the
the University's.

That's always there, but at least one dorm that I know of has this rule against running appliances in a dorm room.
A rule against running a "hotplate" or other heat-generating appliance
(or all "appliances" to avoind the arguments) makes sense.  A rule
against running power-consumers that were not in the cost-of-overhead
calculation makes sense.

Restricting (or trying to restrict) computers in today's University
environment is delusional.
