You can find our Laundry Room in the basement of the Cathedral building. To use any of the washers or dryers, you will need to purchase a laundry card from the vending machine located just outside of the laundry room. When first purchasing your card, you can top up with cash from the vending machine. You will then need to register your card/create an account at: circuitcardtopup.com to top it up. You can also use the website to check which machines are in use and to track your laundry load. Please ensure that you collect your finished laundry promptly so that other residents have a fair chance to use the machines.
