IIRC the dorm fridges, like all home fridges, need to be kept level to work. Get one on sale at WallyWorld for $75 and if if works...great.
But I think there is one maker of Peltier coolers from South Africa where they were meant for uses like safari. Expensive, stainless cladding, and capable of doing better than the usual 40-odd degree cooling. Emphasis on expensive, don't remember the brand name.
Meantime, block ice and dry ice work very nicely, and if you can't get block ice ask your local ice cream store if they can deep-freeze a couple of gallon jugs of spring water for you overnight, any commercial deep freezer will turn those into portable block ice very nicely.
