While Cardinal Towne and University Pointe feature washers and dryers in each private apartment unit, all other residence halls feature laundry facilities. To use these facilities, download the Speed Queen app to your phone or pay with coins.

Weekly Laundry Stipend

Each resident (excluding those in Cardinal Towne and University Pointe) receives two free wash cycles and two free dry cycles each week, and the amount for these expenses is pre-loaded onto your Cardinal Card. After you have surpassed your weekly limit, the cost for washing per load is $1.50 and the cost for drying per load is $1.50.

How Speed Queen Works

The FREE Smartphone app - Speed Queen - is available to download from your app store (both iOS and Google Play). 

Speed Queen allows you do the following:

  • Pay for your laundry by connecting a payment method.
  • View occupied machines and exact time remaining until the end of the cycle.
  • Add additional time to your drying cycle
    • To add additional dry time to your drying cycle, open your Wash Alert app on your smartphone. You can charge 25 cents to your account, and 10 minutes will be added to the dry time. You can also insert one (1) quarter in to the coin slot of the dryer.
  • Request an email or text alert when your laundry is complete
  • Report broken machines and request refunds
    • All refunds will be processed within 72 hours to your Wash Alert account
