King University News :: Laundry Now Free to All Students Residing on Campus

BRISTOL, Tenn., Aug. 12, 2014 - Whether you are a student moving on campus first the first time or moving back into the residence halls, something you have thought of is the ordeal of doing your own laundry and how much it costs. Now, you can cross the cost of laundry off your list. With the beginning of the fall 2014 semester, all residential students of King University will have access to FREE laundry service.

“We are thrilled to provide this free service to our students. King has partnered with Caldwell Gregory to provide free laundry service to our students,” said Suzanne Mullins, assistant dean for Residence Life at King University. “The machines are already switched over. All students will have to do is walk up and do laundry the same as they would in their own home. The machines are placed on free vend, so students only have to walk up, select the appropriate cycle, and push start. We will be getting new machines for the Fall of 2015.”

Previously, residential students had to pay $1.25 per load to wash and $1 to dry. If dryers were over-filled, it could run up to $5 per load to dry.

Currently, laundry service is available in each residential hall including Mitchell, Parks, Liston, and Hyde Halls.
