Each College House and Sansom Place is equipped with laundry facilities with electric washers and dryers in numbers proportionate to the number of residents in the community. As an added amenity of living in a College House or Sansom Place, there is no charge to do laundry. Residents are asked to be respectful of each other by attending to their wash and removing it promptly when the load is completed. The laundry rooms are intended for the use of residents of the Houses and Sansom Place only!

Quick Tip
