What should I do if there is a problem with a machine?

Problems with machines should be reported to the residence desks. The University of Guelph is not responsible for damage to clothing.

When is the best time to do my laundry?

Based on several years' student self reporting; to avoid crowds, the best day(s) to do laundry are Monday through Thursday and try to avoid the 6 pm -10 pm time frame. Saturday tends to have about 20% of students doing laundry and Sundays have been closer to 30%. The other option is to do laundry early in the morning (before 10 am on weekends) or if you have some time off during a weekday, the laundry rooms tend to be fairly quiet before 6 pm.

What are the costs?

Students in all residences except West now have laundry costs included in their residence fees. The West Residence laundromat uses coin-operated machines; each load there will cost $4.00 ($2 wash and $2 dry).
