MSU to offer students free laundry in dorms
Students at Michigan State University may have more money for pizza and beer come fall as the university begins to offer free laundry in its residence halls.
Michigan State housing spokeswoman Ashley Chaney says the move is one way the university is trying to make the dorms more appealing than private off-campus housing.
“Students have their whole lives to live in an apartment and, you know, we really value that on-campus living experience,” Chaney said. “It's a time when everything is taken care of for you.”
Chaney says MSU students who live on campus spent about $1.3 million on laundry last year.
Housing fees will not increase as a result of the new laundry system, she said.
