Laundry On Campus

rendering of a laundry room

Students spend an average of $50 on laundry per semester.

Residence halls and WMU apartments laundry facilities (with the exception of Western Heights and Western View) are now equipped with WaveRider which allows for VISA or Mastercard credit and debit card payments, in addition to coin operation, on each individual machine. Each machine with WaveRider also has WaveVision which allows customers to:

  • Check machines availability before making a trip to the laundry room.
  • Verify how much time is left on a cycle.
  • Receive a text message when their laundry cycle is done.

Alerts will be sent to the service technician in the event of an error condition.
