Coinless laundry, online payments added for Bucknell students

Bucknell University students are now able to track online the availability of campus washers and driers and pay for their use with BU IDs with today’s launch of a new coinless laundry system.

Expanding on a list of campus services that can be accessed or purchased using the Bucknell identification card, the Lewisburg, Penn. school is also introducing an online payment system that allows students and their families to make electronic payments to their billing accounts as well as add funds to both Campus Dollars and Dining Dollars.

The BU ID is a multipurpose card that may be used for a variety of campus services including library borrowing, bookstore purchases, dining, copying, entrance to athletics events, campus box office purchases and now laundry. The card also serves as personal identification and allows entry to residential and other campus buildings.

Using the card, students will be able to pay for laundry at any of the campus laundry facilities, saving the need for coins.

The new service includes LaundryView, a Web site that displays the status of every laundry machine on campus. The system shows the amount of time remaining in the cycle for machines that are in use and allows students to reserve machines and receive text-message alerts when they become available.

The new Campus Dollars is a prepaid flexible spending account that serves as an alternative to cash or checks. These dollars may be used for dining, laundry and other campus purchases. Students may add Campus Dollars to their accounts using the online payment system or with cash or check.
