Laundry on campus

LaundryBUCKs to be retired on July 1.

Western Michigan University will be retiring the LaundryBUCKs system as of July 1, 2017 and replacing it for the Fall of 2017 with debit and credit card access.

  • Balance refunds will be transferred from the LaundryBUCKs account to the university's student account.
  • Refund amounts transferred to the student account will first be applied to any outstanding debt owed to the University.
  • Any remaining dollars from the refund will be reimbursed via direct deposit into the student's bank account set up with the University. If a direct deposit has not been set up for the student account, a check will be mailed to the permanent address if student is not currently enrolled. If student is enrolled for the current semester then the check will go to their mailing address

Please note: Balance can not be transferred over to Dining Dollars.
