Residence Halls Laundry Facilities

Each residence hall is equipped with laundry facilities managed under a subcontract with Automated Industries, Inc.  New machines featuring an updated laundry card system have been installed.  This state-of-the-art system is easier to use and more reliable. The Speed Queen front loader washers have been redesigned for greater energy efficiency, using less water, less electricity, less soap and reducing drying times by extracting more water during the spin cycle. 

Laundry Cards

The machines are exclusively card-operated; coins and personal debit and credit cards are not accepted. At the beginning of each semester, resident students receive one laundry card from Auxiliary Service Corporation at no additional cost. The card comes with a $45 balance and can be used throughout the Fall and Spring semesters, as long as the student remains a resident. Additional funds can be added to the card using the machine on the first floor of Orchard Hall.  If needed, extra cards are available online at Laundry Card Replacement .  Laundry cards are included in the packet that students receive upon checking into the residence halls.   

The initial $45 laundry card provided by ASC is included in the residence hall room charge and comes at no extra cost.  Students are responsible for safeguarding this card against loss or theft.  If an additional card is needed, the student will be responsible for the cost. 

Automatic Laundry Alert

We know that your time is very valuable and managing college life can be difficult. Laundry Alert allows you to check the status of the machines in the laundry room and receive a text or email when a machine is finished.

Optimize your Laundry Experience and Save Energy

In order to get the most out of the laundry machines, please follow these simple tips! Follow these tips and you’ll get the most out of the machines and conserve more energy.

  • Only wash full loads and DO NOT overload the machines.  The washers work best when you have a full load of clothing.  A full load is clothes loosely packed into the washer so you can easily close the door.  If you have to use force to close the door, you have too much in the washer and your clothes will not wash properly.
  • Use only ¼ cup or less of High Efficiency Laundry Detergent.  DO NOT use powder.  If you don’t see a washer full of suds, it does not mean the machine isn't washing.
  • Remember to use 1 dryer for each washer you use.  The dryers may seem large enough to put 2 wash loads into 1 dryer, but remember your clothes need to tumble to dry.  They will take much longer to dry so you’re not saving any money or time.
  • Be courteous to your fellow students and clean the lint filter after you use the dryer.  Simply run your hand along the screen and dispose of the lint in the nearest trash can.
