STONY BROOK, NY, December 17, 2012 – Stony Brook University students can now remotely check the availability of washers and dryers on campus before going to the laundry room with LaundryView, a new service provided by the Faculty Student Association (FSA).
LaundryView is an intelligent laundry system which allows students to see the current availability of washers and dryers being used in each of the 70 residential laundry rooms on campus. The system also gives students an approximation of when new machines will be available for use.
“LaundryView is a great tool that will help students better manage their time by eliminating the need to go to a laundry room to find out if all of the washers and dryers are in use,” said Tony Gentile, FSA’s Machine Operated Services Manager.
The new system gives students access to hourly usage reports to help plan the best time to do laundry, sends an email or text message to students when their wash and dry cycles are complete and automatically detects machine malfunctions and reports them for repairs.
LaundryView is only available to students using their Wolfie Wallet funds to wash and dry their laundry. Students using their Wolfie Wallet funds also receive a 25 cent discount on washing and drying costs.
The Faculty Student Association wants students to give feedback about the new LaundryView system and report any malfunctions with LaundryView, Wolfie Wallet or the actual laundry machines malfunctioning by giving detailed information through the CLEAN hotline at 632–5326 or by completing the “report a problem” form here.
