So my room will officially be in the quad, White IV. I like cooking, so I looked at the floor plan so that I could find the kitchen, but it didn’t seem to exist on there. Is there not actually a kitchen located on the first floor as RPI’s website says there should be, or am I just confused? Also, what is the laundry situation? Thanks!

I would just look at the floor plans listed on RPI’s website http://reslife.rpi.edu/update.do?artcenterkey=72. They will have the most information. I should be noted that some lounges may included kitchens.

All laundry for Quad is in the archway. There are about 20 dryers and washers there.

I will be living in Church VI and wanted to know if there is a big difference in the rooms compared to the rest of quad since it’s kind of by itself. I looked at the quad pictures but I’m not sure if those pictures go for Church as well. Could you also tell me if there are laundry machines in the building? Thanks!

I have looked back in our records and those pictures are not from Church VI. The laundry machines are the same as for the rest of Quad, under the archway between Hunt I and Hunt III.

Where in Quad is the laundry? Are there machines in the Pardee stack or in Roebling? I’m assigned to Pardee and in looking at floor plans on the housing site, it looks like the only connected stack to Pardee is Roebling and that’s it. Is this accurate and if so and there are not laundry facilities in either of these stacks, will I need to actually carry my laundry outside to get to a laundry room?

Each two sets of stacks, except for Church VI – which is by itself, are connected on the third level. Laundry is under the archway between Hunt I and Hunt III – about four stacks down from Pardee. It’s a little annoying but not too much of an inconvenience.

Is the laundry room free? Or do you have to pay for that? What about printing: is that free?

When you live on campus, you have access to free use of the laundry facilities. Most halls have about 6 washers and 6 dryers, but it depends on the size. You have to purchase your own detergent and any fabric softeners, etc.

You are allocated $12.50 of printing (black and white) each semester using campus printers. Prints are $0.08/page + $0.02/job. We also have color printers and plotters available. Paying for the charges is really easy since it automatically goes to your Student Account. I encourage you to check out this for more information: http://helpdesk.rpi.edu/update.do?artcenterkey=303
