Main Campus

Laundry rooms are located in each residence hall.  Every laundry room is equipped with multiple High Efficiency (HE) washers and dryers.  Machines accept coins or Lancer CA$H.  The cost per wash or dry cycle is $1.75 per load. 

The Energy Star® rated, high-efficiency machines installed on campus clean effectively, help save time, and are gentle on your clothes and the environment! High-efficiency, front loading machines hold more clothes and use less water than conventional laundry equipment, saving you time and energy. For best results, use only 2 tbsp. of concentrated HE detergent; it's specially formulated for high-efficiency machines.  If using a pod, place directly in the drum of the washer (not the detergent dispenser).

Longwood Managed Apartments

Lancer Park and Longwood Village apartments are furnished with a washer and dryer at no additional cost.

Lancer Park North and South washer/dryer units are located on each floor, but not in each individual apartment unit.  A laundry plan is included on the student’s Lancer Card in these locations.  (Students are given $96.00 per semester for laundry.  If these funds are depleted, students must use Lancer CA$H to pay for their laundry.)

The Landings washer/dryer units are located in a centralized, laundromat (with card access for Landings residents only) on the 1st floor of SW (Subway) Building Southwest (Subway) building.  A laundry plan is included on the student’s Lancer Card in these locations. (Students are given $96.00 per semester for laundry.  If these funds are depleted, students must use Lancer CA$H to pay for their laundry.)
