Laundry Facilities

Laundry service is provided at no additional charge for residents living on campus. Residents receive unlimited usage of the washers and dryers. 24-hr laundry facilities are located conveniently in each residence hall. For the protection of your personal belongings, do not leave your items unattended. Please report any malfunction of machines to the Office of Residence Life at (573) 651-2274.

Important notes on your laundry facilities on campus:
Over 90% of the washing machines in the Residence Halls are high-efficiency, front-loading units. As a result


Most major brands (ie, Tide, All, Cheer, etc) sell 'h-e' rated detergent, and is readily available in Cape Girardeau at places like Wal-Mart, Target, Schnucks, etc. The 'h-e' detergent is easily distinguished from 'regular' detergent by utilizing the 'h-e' logo above. Please bring only 'h-e' identified detergent, using 'regular' detergent may cause damage to the machines and can cause costly water overflows!

  • Please empty your pockets when loading your laundry. Paper clips, ink pens, coins, bobby pins, etc can all cause major damage to the units and cause extended down time.
  • Please DO NOT utilize the '3 in1 laundry sheets' in the washing machines! This product has been known to cause significant damage and thus extended down time to our units. Fabric softener sheets like Bounce, etc are more than welcome and are encouraged to be used in the dryers.
  • The laundry facilities in the Residence Halls are for residents only. Guests and nonresident students are not allowed to use the laundry facilities.
