What To Know About College Students

Importance of Convenience for On-Campus Laundry Rooms

When it comes to catering to college students, convenience is everything because:

  • College students are busy: They cannot afford to wait hours for their laundry. A washing machine that updates them on their laundry progress and which machines are free can help them use their time more efficiently.
  • College students are campus dwellers: They typically spend most of their time on campus. That implies that the most practical place for a laundry room is inside their dorm, in high-traffic areas or in other easily accessible spots on campus. Placing the washing facility in a handy location will shorten their commute and allow them to use it after a cognitively taxing day of class. 
  • College students are on a budget: They often do not have much extra money to spend, so they are less inclined to pay for a sluggish and inconvenient service.
  • College students are motivated by technology: Today’s students expect their laundry machines to be compatible with their smartphones, tablets and smart cards. Smart cards and apps eliminate the need to go to the bank or save quarters whenever they wash their clothing.
