Laundry Services

Doing Laundry in the Halls!

SUNY Potsdam contracts with the Mac-Gray company to provide high quality laundry services to our students.

Water & Energy-Efficient Washers and Dryers:  Clean & Green
The Energy Star® rated, high-efficiency machines installed on campus clean effectively, help save time and are gentle on your clothes and the environment. High-efficiency, front loading machines hold more clothes and use less water than conventional laundry equipment saving you time and energy. For best results, use only 2 tbsp. of concentrated HE detergent; it’s specially formulated for high-efficiency machines.

Mac-Gray's Laundry 101

  • Washer and dryers are free for residential students. Students may need to still swipe their SUNY card in some areas when they use the machines. A laundry fee is already included in your college bill.

  • Washers and dryers are located in the basement of each building.  In some areas of Bowman and Draime Halls the laundry rooms are on each floor. There is a central laundry unit in each section of the townhouse complex - building E and building F.

  • Detergent, fabric softener, laundry bags and totes are available for purchase at the Union Market in the Barrington Student Union.

For Townhouse Residents: View Your Laundry On-line!

  • LaundryView® Makes Laundry More Convenient
    LaundryView allows you to check the status of machines in your laundry room online without ever setting foot outside your room.  And the LaundryView® Text Alerts feature lets you ask the machine for a text message when your cycle is complete. Together they make doing laundry a breeze.

  • The system also allows customers to report a problem with service.

  • LaundryView is a PACES service contracted with Mac-Gray, our laundry machine providers.
