There are laundry rooms on the ground floors of the 90U, Stanton, Henderson and Rideau residences, and on every floor of the Friel Residence. To use the machines, you must purchase a Discover uOttawa card. For more information, contact the reception desk. Instructions on how to use the machines are in the laundry rooms.

Your kitchenette includes a dining table, refrigerator, microwave and sink.  Utensils and cutlery aren’t included.
