Well they do look a bit like fridges with their grey monolithic facades. The Fridge is allegedly a male resident flat and the Fridgette a female resident flat. The Fridge features in the 2008 documentary, Old, Cost and Costly, when the tenants at the time were having issues with the state of the house.

Had a great weekend in Dunedin catching up with old mates and checking out the baby of the family @ellenweber and her flat on Castle St. So many great memories from this epic Street. Wow, if the walls of my flat could tell stories… #babysisterallgrownup #CastleSt #scarfie #fridgette #uptheSharks
Zeta came into being this year, the name was inspired by a sorority house “Zeta Alpha Zeta” in the movie, The House Bunny, from 2008. The film is a firm favourite of the Zeta flatties, who have painted a house sign to replicate that from the movie.
This isn’t the first time 241 Castle Street has carried a flat sign. Earlier this century, for a short time, it was known as The Cardboard Box and it carried a rather splendid stenciled sign.
