The following message was sent to campus residents on October 4th by Residence Life and Housing.
Residence Life and Housing (RL&H) is committed to providing you with the amenities necessary to make your living space a home away from home. One of those amenities is having laundry facilities available in each residential area. RL&H has been monitoring student laundry use since the start of the semester and we want to provide you with some information and materials that can assist you with getting the most out of your laundry facilities:
- Do not leave your clothes in the machines overnight or unattended for long periods of time. RL&H is not responsible for items left unattended in the laundry facilities. Please refer to the signage in the laundry rooms and the Guide to Community Living should you find that your laundry is missing.
- Less is more, especially when it comes to detergent! The number one reason our washing machines break down is because too much detergent is used. Our washers are high-efficiency washers and only require a fourth (1/4) of a cup of detergent for each load. Using too much detergent can damage you laundry, cause the machine to spin out, and over-suds the entire machine (see the picture below).
- Do not stuff the machine, this greatly increases the risk of your items being damaged.
- Do not attempt to wash and/or dry shoes, comforters, and other large or bulky items. This will most certainly damage both your items and the machines.
- When you find a machine that is not working properly, please report it using the CSC Service Works App (details are on the attached flyer). The sooner a machine is reported as not functioning properly, the sooner it can be fixed!
Please find attached to this e-mail information that will assist you with doing laundry on campus: Laundry flyer and Laundry Information. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to get in touch with your hall staff. Thank you for your assistance in keeping our machines up and running for everyone to use!

If Your Student Has a Problem
One of the best ways parents/families can help their students is to let them solve their own problems. Use the Stop, Drop, and Roll method when your student contacts you with a problem. The flyer also lists contact information for serious concerns where family intervention might be appropriate.
