Laundry Services

Laundry machines are FREE OF CHARGE for all UAlbany resident and campus apartment students. 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! 

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.

Laundry Tips
