General Information

FSA in conjunction with Residential Life and Services operates Laundry rooms in the basements of the 3 residence halls located at;

440 Lenox Rd.
811 New York Ave and
825 New York Ave.

FSA's Green Initiatives in Laundry : All Washing machines have water-saving and high energy efficiency ratings. Approximately 85-90% of the energy used by a washing machine is consumed through heating the water. Unless you are washing particularly greasy and filthy clothes, hot water is not needed; cold water works just fine. Electrical or gas savings in dryers because of the amount of energy and water consume. Faster drying times: Because of the horizontal axis and faster spin speeds, more water is removed and your clothes will dry faster in the dryer, acheiving more energy efficiency. Check out Laundryview too - helps eliminate wasted elevator trips to the basement!
