Laundry

Laundry is FREE in the Residence Halls!

Residents should use machines that flash "FREE/START" on the console, and follow the instructions below. Residents can also check machine availability in advance using the LaundryView website

New Step in Laundry Process this Summer

Please note that tapping your BuzzCard may be required at this time. We are in the process of upgrading our laundry rooms this summer, so residents may see this new step added to their laundry room routine. Look for signage in your laundry room with each step for starting machines (also listed below).

  • Residents will see a $.01* charge appear on screen when activating each machine - this pulls from an auto-refilling laundry funds account each resident receives, not a resident's BuzzCard Funds.
  • This laundry fund loads onto a resident's BuzzCard automatically 24 hours after checking into their room for the term. Residents can see and monitor this account in their eAccounts app. 

If your hall laundry room does not yet have an active BuzzCard reader, you should skip step 2 and continue to select your cycle and press start on the machines as you have previously.
