Laundry Facilities in the Residence Halls


Residents have access to state of the art, energy efficient, technologically advanced laundry machines provided in each residence hall.

Each laundry room is complete with WaveRider washers and dryers. 

Laundry cards

  • Visa and Mastercard credit/debit/gift cards may be used as payment for each individual washer and dryer.
  • You must have a minimum of $8.00 available on your debit/credit/gift card for 3 hours. After 3 hours, the $8.00 hold will be released and only the amount you used within the 3 hours will be charged to your account. If you do not have at least $8.00 available your transaction will be declined. 
  • You may use a pre-paid debit/credit/ gift card, but it must have a minimum of $8.00 available.


  • WaveVision allows you to see which laundry machines are available for use and even sends you a text message to tell you your laundry is done.
  • Just go to the WaveVision website, sign up as a new user, and select 90601 as your zip code and Whittier College as your location. Fill out the rest of your information, start washing, and keep tracking!
