Laundry Services

Residential students have free, 24/7 access to laundry machines.

All laundry machines are synced with LaundryView, a free website that allows you to monitor the availability of washers and dryers on campus. LaundryView can also send you a text when your laundry is done. 

Don’t forget to maintain physical distance and wear a mask while in campus laundry rooms. Please fold your laundry in your room and wash or sanitize your hands thoroughly. 
 

How to Use a Washer
  • Check your clothing pockets. 

  • Add laundry detergent or a detergent pod. 

  • If you are using detergent pods, throw them in directly with your laundry. 

  • If you are using regular detergent, use the cap as a guide before pouring. 

  • Load the washer, leaving about five inches of space from the top. If you overload the machine, your clothing won’t get fully washed. 

  • Select your cycle, temperature and other cycle options. 
     

How to Use a Dryer
  • Clean the lint screen to allow for maximum air flow. 

  • Remember that one washer load is one dryer load. If you overload the machine, your clothing won’t get fully dry. 

  • Check your clothing tags for drying instructions. 

  • Select your desired temperature setting.  

Visit Campus Clothesline for more laundry tips.
 

How to Report a Laundry Issue

Laundry machines are serviced by CSC Service Works. A license plate is attached to all machines and shows a unique machine number you can use to report any issues.  

You have four options for reporting a laundry issue: 

 

For additional questions or concerns regarding laundry services, please contact University Auxiliary Services.

Mail & Printing Services

Visit the Mail & Rapid Copy Services website for instructions for receiving and sending mail and information on copying and printing services.

Maintenance Requests

If something in your room, suite, apartment or building requires maintenance, please speak with your Resident Assistant (RA) or Housing Manager, or contact your housing area office. Our staff will fill out a maintenance request on your behalf.

MicroFridge Rentals

The MicroFridge is the only microwave allowed in the residence halls (quads). It is a three-in-one refrigerator, microwave and freezer. 

Students are allowed to bring their own refrigerators to campus, but the units must be 6 cubic feet or less, 110-volt, 1.75-amp and UL-approved.  

Students can rent or purchase a MicroFridge from Refrigerator Leasing Company.  

A rental MicroFridge costs $200 for the academic year and are typically shared by roommates or suitemates. One person needs to arrange the rental, however, as the company cannot split the order between multiple people. 

Please contact Refrigerator Leasing Company directly with any questions.

 

For additional questions or concerns regarding MicroFridges, please contact University Auxiliary Services.

Moving & Storage Services

Don’s Moving and Storage offers move-in, move-out and summer storage services to UAlbany students. Note: This is the only storage and moving company allowed on our campus. 

Don’s Moving and Storage can help you move your belongings into or out of your campus housing. They can also pick up storage boxes during spring move-out, store them over the summer and then drop them off during fall move-in.

Visit our Move-in and Move-out pages for more detailed information.

 

For additional questions or concerns regarding moving and storage, please contact University Auxiliary Services.

Parking & Mass Transit

Visit the Parking & Mass Transit Services website for information on CDTA buses, UAlbany buses, parking permits and bicycles.  

Trash & Recycling

Residential students have trash and recycling bins in their room, suite or apartment. Students are responsible for sorting their recycling and bringing all trash and recycling to in the appropriate collection location. 
 

Trash

Drop garbage off in your residence hall trash room or one of your apartment complex's outdoor dumpsters.
 

Mixed Paper & Cardboard

This category includes office paper, cardboard, envelopes (with or without a plastic window), notebooks, cereal boxes, etc. No pizza boxes. 

Drop these items off in the trash room or one of your apartment complex's outdoor dumpsters. 

A certain level of metal is acceptable, as the processing plan uses magnets to pull out staples, paper clips and even wiring from notebooks. 
 

Co-mingled Recycling

This category includes plastic, aluminum and glass. You must rinse all items and remove all caps, lids and straws. 

Drop these items off in the trash room or one of your apartment complex's outdoor dumpsters. 

Plastic products should have a number (1 to 7) inside a tri-arrow symbol stamped. Our recycling provider only accepts numbered 1 and 2 plastics. They will send any item numbered 3 through 7 to the landfill. 
 

Batteries

Battery disposal and recycling is handled by UAlbany's Office of Environmental Health & Safety. Please visit the Hazardous Waste webpage for University Battery Recycling Locations.
 

Ink Jet & Toner Cartridges

Drop used ink jet and toner cartridges in the labeled bins located near your housing area’s office or in the University Bookstore.

    Women's Resource Center  

    The Women’s Resource Center raises awareness about women’s oppression while celebrating our collective progress and empowerment. It’s a central resource for women on campus to find support academically, professionally and socially. 

    The center offers artistic, cultural and leadership opportunities to our students. It also organizes community service events that benefit local women and children, as well as our campus community. 

    Our programs teach students how to practice mutual respect, analyze formal and informal gender roles, distinguish what behaviors positively contribute to a more equitable society and assess their own identity.

    Requests must be made at least two weeks before the event. Rooms are reserved on a first come, first served basis.
