    Students living in campus residence hall will notice something different in their laundry rooms this fall - new washers and dryers. And, they will notice something missing: A Royal swipe card connection to the machines.

    The 100 new washing machines and 100 new dryers installed over the summer no longer require a Royal card for use. The LG commercial-grade laundry machines are all front service accessible. The programming controls are intuitive and allow students to choose from a variety of functions and programs easily.

    “Students in residence hall you will no longer need to swipe a Royal Card or load a machine with quarters to activate the washers and dryers. They can just load their clothes into the new machines, choose a cycle and press start key. It’s that simple and they can do as many loads as they want” said Bradley Troy, director of residence life.

    A laundry service was added to the housing charges, allowing the University to invest in the new washers and dryers, and allowing students living in residence halls use of new appliances during the year without accessing their Royal Card.

    Troy said the change would make doing laundry easier for the students, as well as the staff, because credits would no longer have to be issued for any problems incurred with the equipment.

    In addition to the new machines, new instructions will be placed on the walls in the laundry rooms for the students should they encounter a problem with the new washers and dryers.

    The laundry rooms are also equipped with new instructions for using the LG appliances to wash and dry clothes.

    After all, college is about learning, even if the lesson is about laundry.
