General Instructions for Using Laundry Machines

Most of our washing machines are designed for high efficiency (He) liquid detergents. If high efficiency detergents are not available, one-quarter cup of a normal liquid detergent may be used.

We also suggest that residents use a mesh bag for delicate items (mesh bags can be purchased at most department stores). In order to avoid damage to laundry machines, please:

  • Do not use washer/dryer combo sheets
  • Do not use powdered detergents
  • Do not fill the machine more than halfway with clothing

Laundry Monitoring Systems: Laundry Alert

Some of our newer laundry facilities are equipped with Laundry Alert systems that let you view the status of washers and dryers online using your smartphone or computer.

With LAUNDRY ALERT- enabled laundry rooms, located at Red Jacket, Spaulding, Lehman and Clinton residence halls in Ellicott and Governors Complex you can:
