There is a self service laundry area with washing machines and dryers in the basement of each residence hall.  Resident Advisers distribute the Laundry Smart Cards to every student during the first week of the semester.  If lost, a replacement laundry card can be picked up from the Office of University Housing & Residence Life, located in 215 Lexington, Room 520, during regular business hours.

There are two options to pay for the use of the laundry facilities.  Students can either use a credit card to set up an online account or they can use the cash machine, which is located in the Brookdale Laundry Room, to add money to their smart cards.

To register either a new card, a replacement card or to assign a card to a different residence hall, please follow the instructions above.

Laundry Alert is a service that enables students to:

  • Determine the availability of washers and dryers in the building's laundry room.
  • Request to be notified via email when a machine becomes available.
  • Know when the wash/dry cycle is finished without waiting around for it.

Laundry Alert notifies students so there's no need to keep running down to the laundry room to check on machines. To use this service, enter the building's log-in, which can be found on the laundry machine, and click "Sign In".

To report any problems with the machines in the laundry room, please fill out a Work Order Form by clicking on this link.
