Free Laundry Services At The MBSF Offers Students A Thrifty Alternative

tv_News 10dbMONTICELLO – Students living on campus at the University of Arkansas at Monticello currently pay for their laundry to be cleaned while free laundry services exist.

   The use of washing machines at Bankston Hall, Maxwell Hall, Horsefall Hall, Royer Hall, University Apartments and Family Housing cost $1 to wash one load of clothes. The use of a dryer costs $1 to dry one load of laundry.

   The Missionary Baptist Student Fellowship offers free washing machine and dryer services to all UAM students.

   Clint Pruitt, senior general studies major, said, “The apartment’s washing machine and dryer both work. It’s just some people don’t want to use what little money they have on laundry.”

   In Monticello, the Wash-O-Matic charges $1.50 for use of the small washing machines while the use of the big washing machines cost $4.50. The use of dryers cost 50 cents.

   Dean of students Scott Kuttenkuler said a third-party vendor, ASI Campus Laundry Services, owns the washing machines and dryers in the campus resident buildings.

   Kuttenkuler said the university covers the cost of running the machines, but most of the money goes to ASI Campus Laundry Services. He said he knows the university at least breaks even.

   ASI Campus Laundry Services partners with more than 400 schools providing laundry services for approximately one million students.

   ASI Campus Laundry Services does all the maintenance to the machines on campus. Kuttenkuler said when a machine malfunctions the school submits a work order online to ASI Campus Laundry Services. He said they fix the machines fairly quickly.

   For more information, please contact Kuttenkuler by email at kuttenkuler@uamont.edu or by phone at 460-1110.
