Laundry Services

 

Laundry Services and The Haven Dollars Account

The Lock Haven Student Auxiliary Services, Inc. has contracted with Equipment Marketers, Maytag and ITC Systems to provide state-of-the-art laundry machines within our residence halls. Our new energy efficient washers use 15.5 gallons of water for each load of laundry, compared with 31.5 gallons in years past. The new washers also save students money by using only 1/3 of the soap of a top loading washing machine. Maytag Energy Star-rated front-load washers and commercial dryers are available in all of our Residence Halls.

Haven Dollars

Haven Dollars is the name of our vending and laundry money account service. With Haven Dollars, all of the washers and dryers in the laundry rooms marked with a "Y" below can be paid for by swiping your Lock Haven University Student I.D. in a card reader located in the laundry room. Money can be put on your Student I.D. for laundry by visiting the Haven Dollars website or by visiting the Haven Dollars kiosk in Bentley Dining Hall, next to the ATM. This is just one more effort to make living on campus ever more convenient for our residents.

Washers and dryers can now start with a swipe of your Lock Haven University Student I.D. card. Money can be put on your Student I.D. for laundry by visiting the Haven Dollars website or by visiting the Haven Dollars kiosk in Bentley Dining Hall, next to the ATM.

The standard rate for one washer cycle is $1.50 and one dryer cycle is $1.25 Quarters are still accepted by the machines. For example, if a resident would like to use additional services such as super cycle for the washer, or to add extra time to the dryers, Haven Dollars will pay for the standard cycle and then quarters must be added on the machine.

When a resident uses their Haven Dollars to pay for a washer, the washer is automatically considered to be "in-use" for a period of forty-five minutes to allow for different cycle options. If the chosen cycle is less than forty-five minutes, the washer will not be available for use with another Haven Dollars account until the forty-five minutes has elapsed. The minimum amount of time on any washing cycle is 35 minutes, so the maximum wait time will be 10 minutes.

Haven Dollars vs. FLEX Dollars

It is important to note that Haven Dollars are not the same as Flex dollars and funds cannot be transferred between the two. Flex Dollars are used in the dining hall and the affiliated dining areas only.

Haven Dollars can be put on your Student I.D. for laundry by visiting the Haven Dollars website or by visiting the Haven Dollars kiosk in Bentley Dining Hall, next to the ATM. Money additions to a students Haven Dollars account are available instantly for use.

 

Helpful Tips

If you find that the soap has not completely rinsed out of your clothes most likely you used more than 1/3 of the soap recommended for a top loading machine, wash again with the recommended amount of soap for a front loading washing machine.
