Washers and Dryers

In any building without individual machines in each dorm room, washers and dryers are in common areas on each floor or in one central location in the building.  All operating directions are posted on bulletin boards in the laundry rooms. You can use your GWorld card to pay for laundry machines. 


  • Do not dye clothing, or place flammable materials or clothing soaked with flammable liquids in the washers or dryers
  • Clean out the lint trap after each dryer use and check to make sure it’s clear before each load.  Lint left in the trap is a potential fire hazard and will prevent the dryer from drying effectively
  • Do not overload your washer or dryer
