Laundry Facilities

Please employ these useful tips when using the laundry rooms. It will go a long way in creating a clean and comfortable living environment for everyone in the community as well as enhance safety measures.

  • Please clean out the lint trap in the dryer after each use. Neglecting to clean the lint trap will not only inconvenience the next resident who uses the dryer, but more importantly, it can create a fire hazard. Lint build-up in the trap can cause the pilot light to spark and set fire to the lint. As responsible University Village community members, residents must do their part to keep The University Village community clean and protect the community against fire hazards.
  • Please clean up after yourself while you are using the laundry room and after you have finished your laundry; this includes, but is not limited to: removing lint from lint traps, discarding used dryer sheets, cleaning up spilled laundry detergent, and other miscellaneous laundry materials. It is important for University Village residents to be considerate of their fellow community members when using community resources.
  • Please do not forget your clothes in the washing machine and/or the dryer. Leaving your clothes in a machine may prevent another resident from washing/drying his or her clothes. As a reminder, set your cell phone timer to the time remaining on the machine. By doing this, your cell phone will alert you when your clothes have finished washing or drying.

Computer Labs

Computer Labs are available to residents of Peregrine and Griffin Hall twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. To obtain access to a computer lab, the resident must request a computer lab access card at the Service Desk of University Village. In order to receive a computer lab card, the resident must submit his/her PUC ID which will be kept at the Service Desk until the resident turns the computer lab card back in at the Service Desk. If there is high demand for access to the computer lab, all computer lab users will be limited to one hour access. Residents who obtain computer lab cards must use the computer lab throughout the duration of their possession of the computer cards. When residents are finished using the computer lab, the computer lab cards must be returned to the respective Service Desk. Residents who are found using the computer labs without properly checking out computer lab cards may be subject to resident conduct proceedings.

Music Practice Rooms

Residents are encouraged to use the music practice room in Griffin Hall to alleviate noise complaints in other areas of The University Village community.
