Other Service Requests
To report a problem with laundry equipment, contact CSC Service Works, the company KU uses to provide service.
Residents have access to free, high efficiency, front-loading laundry machines available in every KU Student Housing building. Laundry in your hall is a convenience included as part of your housing rate, so there’s no need to add money to your KUID card, or to bring a roll of quarters. If you don’t know where your laundry rooms are, ask your RA or your front desk.
Use high-efficiency laundry soap. The equipment provider recommends using the pre-measured individual single-use packets.
