New washers and dryers in KU Student Housing

Wednesday, July 3, 2013

KU students will have brand-new, high efficiency laundry machines available in August in every KU Student Housing building.

A new feature available to apartment residents will allow students to check the availability of laundry equipment from their room. Residence hall students will be able to use this technology after the installation later this fall. The new monitoring system, and the washers and dryers, are from ASI Campus Laundry Solutions.

The new machines help fulfill KU Student Housing’s sustainability goals. Student Housing expects to save between three and four million gallons of water annually with the new front-loading washing machines.

Here are a few things you should know:

  • Pay for the laundry with your KU Card. Only Stouffer Place and Sunflower Apartments will accept coins. Laundry will cost $1.50 for wash and $1.50 for dryer.
  • Use high-efficiency laundry soap. The equipment provider recommends using the pre-measured individual single-serving packets.
  • A video on how to use the new machines is available.

It is unlikely there would be service calls because the machines are brand new, but if there is a question or issue, contact ASI or find out how to download the service request app.
