Our traditional residence halls and apartment areas each have a modern laundry room for the exclusive use of on-campus residents at no additional charge. Each laundry room is equipped with state-of-the-art, water-saving, energy-efficient washers and dryers.

Laundry detergent, bleach, fabric softener and dryer sheets will need to be purchased at Mac's General store (140 Phillips Hall) or off-campus as these are not provided or vended in the laundry room. Clothing items that require dry cleaning will need to be taken to an off-campus laundry (many are listed in the Ithaca Guide maintained by the Information Desk). The Campus Bookstore also offers dry cleaning services.

Clothing items that require it can be ironed in a student's room. However, the iron must be equipped with an automatic shutoff. Steamers can be used to remove wrinkles as well, but only within a laundry room or kitchen.

Washing Machines

LaundryView enables our students to monitor the status of their laundry online. A student can request an E-mail or "text" alert be sent when a machine becomes available or a cycle finishes. No more waiting in the laundry room!
