The University of Lynchburg’s laundry program includes high-efficiency (HE), front-load washers and dryers in all campus laundry rooms. Payment is made by using the Speed Queen mobile app instead of coins. Washers and dryers each cost $1.75 per load.
The University of Lynchburg has instituted the Speed Queen mobile app for laundry service on campus. Students may download the app in the App Store or Google Play. The Speed Queen mobile app allows students to use a credit or debit card to add funds to their account, view machine availability, see remaining cycle times on machines in use, and receive notification once cycle time is complete. Detailed information about setting up and using the Speed Queen mobile app is available on the webpage “Laundry Service on Campus” (lynchburg.edu/student-life/housing/laundry-service-on-campus).
To operate campus washing machines correctly:
- Use only liquid HE detergent; look for the “h·e” symbol on detergent bottles.
- Follow the detergent manufacturer’s directions for the correct amount of liquid to use. HE washers require less detergent than conventional machines; even less is needed if the detergent is concentrated.
- Pour detergent and liquid fabric softener into the dispenser, not directly on the clothing.
Problems with laundry machines or the Speed Queen mobile app should be reported directly to the University of Lynchburg’s laundry vendor, Caldwell & Gregory, or call 800.927.9274.
