The residence hall laundry rooms will be getting an upgrade this summer. When students return to campus for Fall 2014, they will be greeted with all new laundry machines and some new technology!

Our new laundry machines will operate on a debit card system. The machines will also take quarters for those who may not have a debit or credit card. We will no longer be utilizing the smart cards you currently possess. Please keep this in mind as you are doing laundry for the rest of the year and adding value to your smart cards. We recommend only adding funds you need to the card, since you will not be able to use it in the fall.

Our new laundry system will also have some cool new features. Not only will you now be able to use your debit or credit card to do laundry, but you will be able to receive a text message when your laundry is done! No more forgetting about your clothes in the dryer!  

You will also be able to check online before going down to the laundry room to see how many washers and dryers are currently in use and how many are free.  The website also has a mobile application, so you can check it all from your phone if you’re not in your room too!

For questions about the new laundry system, please contact Nina Fleming, Assistant Dean of Students, at nfleming@carthage.edu.

The laundry room upgrades are sponsored by Student Government and the Office of Student Life.
