University Housing's laundry rooms have energy-efficient washers and dryers. The machines use 12.8 gallons of water per cycle, compared to the previous 31 gallons. High efficiency detergent (look for labels marked with "HE") is recommended for our laundry machines. Many major brands of laundry detergent are now designed to be used in high efficiency machines. You can find them at grocery or retail stores, or in the Student Dining and Residential Programs building at 57 North. If you already purchased regular detergent, please see the decal on the machine for the correct amount to use—it will be much less than a regular load. Laundry "pods" are not recommended for these machines.
