Laundry Services


In August 2015, all residential quad buildings along with Freedom Apartments and Liberty Terrace were upgraded with high-efficient front-load Speed Queen washers and dryers. The upgrade is estimated to save at least $15,000 per year. New washing machines require only 2 tablespoons or less of detergent depending on the type of detergent. (Please see below)

Laundry machines are free of charge and rooms are open 24/7. All laundry machines are synced with LaundryView, a free online website that allows you to monitor the status of washers and dryers on campus for availability. LaundryView can also send a text alert notifying you when your laundry is done! To access LaundryView, click here or download the UAlbany App via the App Store or Google Play!

Laundry machines are serviced by MacGray & ASI Campus Laundry Solutions. A license plate is attached to all laundry machines and can be used to report issues, along with the machine number on each machine. There are several ways to report issues:

Important Laundry Information:
  • Place detergent pods directly in the washing machine with clothes.
    NOT the detergent drawer.
  • Check all pockets before putting clothes in machines.
  • Small items should be washed in a mesh garment bag.
