Laundry facilities are available in each building and are J-Card operated. Laundry costs are included in the on-campus housing fees and as such all residents will automatically receive 18 cycles of laundry per month (1 wash or dry = 1 cycle). The 18 cycles per month are valued at $27 ($1.50 per cycle) and on the 1st of each month, the balance is reset to $27.
In order to check your balance, simply log onto your account in SIS or download the eAccounts app (where your mobile credential is set up). Please note that you will see a separate laundry cash balance. Laundry cash can only be used in the residence hall laundry rooms. If you utilize all 18 cycles in one month, and still have more laundry to do, J-Cash can then be used to pay for laundry.
To use your laundry cycles, simply go to the residence hall laundry room closest to you, select your laundry machine, and swipe your card! It’s that easy! Download the Speed Queen app to track the status of your washer/dryer.
