Laundry facilities

For booking, see page Booking

Location

The laundry facilities are in the basement of the dormitory. You will find it in block 2 (South), either by getting to the bottom of the main staircase going left into the hallway and enter the first door to the left, after which you’ll see the entrance to the laundry room. (You can also follow the red line that starts by the toilets to Falladen)

Payment and reservation/booking

Before you can use the laundry services you have to activate your RFID key tag. This is done with the code you receive from the inspector when moving in. If you are experiencing problems with you key tag then contact the Inspector.

You use you key tag for the laundry facilities. There are 6 washing machines and 3 dryers available (so things really get going!). It is possible to reserve the washing machines (up to 6 at a time) if you want to be sure that you can start a cycle. See more about this under Booking. The dryer cannot be reserved, however it is rare that there are problems with not being able to dry your laundry. You can make a reservation every 1.5 hours. You have to start your cycle within the first 10 minutes, otherwise your reservation is overwritten.

Remember to use a laundry bag for bras, so that the machines don’t get damaged. Additionally we urge you to empty all pockets of your clothing before starting a laundry cycle. The drum within the drum in the machine can be damaged if there are loose components inside of it.

Opening hours

The washing machines can be used from 06:00-22:00, and the dryers from 06:00-23:00. This is to accommodate the residents living above the laundry room. You can always enter the room with you RFID key tag.
