If you are living in student housing, the time will eventually come when you need to do laundry. There are laundromats in almost all residence halls and they are very easy to use.

First, you will need to deposit funds on your UNC One Card expense account in order to do laundry. Once you have funds on your expense account, follow these steps:

  1. Swipe your UNC One Card in the reader.
  2. Select the machine you want to use, either a washer or dryer (note: reader for dryers will ask you if you want additional cycles at this time). Don’t walk away from the reader until you finish the order process and your balance appears.

Washers charge $1.00 per load and dryers charge 50 cents per 30 minutes of drying time.

From the One Card CaroLaundry mobile website, you can see which machines are available, put a 5-minute hold on a machine and set up email/text notifications to let you know when your laundry cycle is done. You can even notify the last user that their clothes are ready!

Laundry Ticket Log In

Departmental Laundry Services is now using the web-based UNC Laundry Tickets application to create and print Laundry Tickets for Departmental Laundry Service. To add new Laundry Service or to complete or modify setup for an existing UNC Laundry Number please contact Jay Donohue at 919-962-4986 or jfxtad3@ad.unc.edu.

To set up someone to create tickets for laundry service you will need to provide the following information:

  • UNC Laundry Number (if this is an existing account – Jay will assign one for new service).
  • Onyen (required)
  • Name (required)
  • Email Address (required)
  • Phone Number (required)
  • Person’s role (indicate if the person is a Ticket Creator or Department/Billing Contact (or both))

A Department/Billing Contact is required for each UNC Laundry Number in order for a Laundry Ticket to be saved. This person can create tickets but will also be the person that is contacted if the Chartfield String on the ticket has been rejected.

Additional documentation is located to the right. If you are a Ticket Creator only, you should look at Ticket Creator, My Favorite Chartfield Strings and Internet Explorer Compatibility. The Departmental/Billing Contact should download all the documents.

If you receive errors while creating tickets with the web application, please put in a help ticket and select ITS Services/ITS University Services/Customer Billing Management. Make sure the description states the problem is with UNC Laundry Tickets along with the complete error message that you received.
