The fine art of stealth cooking at work.

I occupy a large, remote office that is rarely visited by anyone with authority. It just occurred to me that I could actually cook
my lunch in my office each day. What are some tips for stealthily cooking at work?

I have an electric tea kettle. I'm trying to think of unobtrusive kitchen appliances and healthy food combinations. My goal is to save money, eat healthily, not make a huge mess and enjoy the pleasure of a simple, hot lunch as I grade papers and write. I have to be somewhat discrete because students come by.
The office is divided by a separator, but nobody occupies the other half.
I'm trying to avoid anything complicated or too messy, like frying or butchering my own meat. I have a small refrigerator, but would consider upgrading to a small chest freezer if I could justify it.
I have spent the last few days thinking about rice cookers with steamer attachments, and freshly chopped vegetables.
There is a microwave down the hallway that belongs to the theater department. I can use it, if I'm not too overbearing about it. Their refrigerator is locked, and I'm afraid to think about what might be in it.
Oh, and there is a sink in the break room as well.
