Laundry

Residents are provided "60 starts"" each semester on their ODU ID card, which is enough for 30 loads of laundry (1 wash + 1 dry = 1 load). If additional "starts" are needed, they can be purchased with Monarch Plus. Monarch Plus funds can be deposited at the University Card Center, located in the Webb Center, or online via the Card Center website. The "starts" can be carried over from fall to spring semester. Nusbaum apartment complex has a laundry room located at 49th and Killam; Powhatan has two laundry rooms throughout the complex. Swipes expire at the end of the spring semester agreement periods.
