SFU Residence has state-of-the art laundry rooms located in each of the building. The machines are smart-card operated.
All new residents receive a Laundry card (no value on it) as part of their welcome package. Replacement cards can be purchased for $5.00 each (non-refundable).
Residents will have two (2) convenient options to load your laundry card
Option 1: Pinmate Machine
To add value to your smart card online, you will need a valid credit card – MasterCard or Visa Card and a laundry card. Website: www.coinamatic.com/
Option 2: Debit/Credit Terminal
This option is currently not available. We will email you once the terminal is installed in the Residence and Housing office. Until such time, you can purchase a pre-loaded value smart card at the front desk. We will have $10 and $15 value cards available. These cards do not require you to register them online and are active upon purchase.
