Laundry - There is a laundry room in every residence hall. All washers and dryers in traditional University Residences are front-load high-efficiency machines that maximize load size and conserve water and energy use.

Students may add funds to their Boiler Express account at the Purdue ID Card Office, at Smalley Center or via the Purdue ID Card Office online feature. Coins will no longer be required, except where noted below.

A Wash Alert feature enables students to check availability of laundry machines via computer or any web-enabled smart phone. Please Note: WashAlert requires you to be on PAL3.0 or WebVPN to access.

University Residences partners with reputable vendors to provide bed loft rental, MicroFridge rental and futon purchase options to accessorize your room. Approved lofts are an easy and affordable way to increase living space within your room by raising the bed high enough for a couch, desk or TV to fit under the bed. All lofts have a bed rail pre-installed for safety. The MicroFridge rental is a one-of-a-kind unit that includes a refrigerator, freezer and microwave. Students who place orders by the deadline will receive free in-room delivery and assembly before move-in day. Note: A small percentage of our rooms are uniquely sized and may not be approved for a loft rental.
