Laundry

Laundry is FREE in the Residence Halls!

New machines have been installed in all of our halls, and while they come with many benefits, the most important is that laundry is FREE to residents! Please visit this page for tips and tricks for achieving a buzzworthy fluff and fold.

Update on Laundry Service:

Residents should use machines that flash "FREE/START" on the console, and follow the instructions below. A BuzzCard tap is not required at this time. If you encounter a machine that is not working, please send an email to the Work Center team at facilities@housing.gatech.edu and include the number of the machine and laundry room. 

New Steps for the Washers:
  1. Load your laundry into the machine of your choice.
  2. Go to the BuzzCard reader in the laundry room and follow the on-screen prompts to select and activate your machine number. 
  3. Return to your washer to add your detergent, etc. and select your wash cycle on the machine.  
  4. Hit start on the washer. 
New Steps for the Dryers:
  1. Load your laundry into the machine of your choice.
  2. Clean out the machine's lint trap!
  3. Go to the BuzzCard reader in the laundry room and follow the on-screen prompts to select and activate your machine number. 
  4. Return to your dryer to select your drying cycle on the machine.
  5. Hit start on the dryer.

*If your hall laundry room does not yet have an active BuzzCard reader, you should continue to select your cycle and press start on the machines as you have previously. 

Machine Issues?

If you have an issue with the machines (stuck clothing, stuck BuzzCard, etc.) start by downloading the CSC ServiceWorks Service Request App or visit this page on CSC's website. Scan the barcode on the machine or enter the machine ID, then submit your service request.

Do not submit a work order in My Housing. For urgent issues after hours, call your RA on duty. 
 

Tips and Tricks

  • Leave the machine door open after you're finished, allowing it to air out.
  • Cleaning out the lint trap before each dryer load leads to faster drying and prevents fire safety issues!
  • If the machine locks with your items inside:
    • During business hours: call the Housing Facilities team at 404-894-0520 
    • After hours: call the RA on duty, they will connect with the emergency maintenance team. 
  • Don't try to pay for your laundry - no payment is necessary!
