Laundry Facilities

See our separate page for information on Laundry Facilities.


Every residence hall room has a clearly marked blue recycling tote for students to collect all recyclable materials including newspapers and magazines, bottles and cans, and mixed paper. Material collected in the tote can be taken to the nearest Outdoor Site (blue carts located behind most campus buildings including residence halls) and separated into the appropriate roll carts.

Also, the front office of every residential community has recycling bins for batteries, printer cartridges and compact fluorescent bulbs. For assistance with safe, proper cleanup of broken compact fluorescent bulbs, please contact Fix My Room.  Instructions for safe cleanup

Residential Green Games

Residential Green Games is a student-run environmental competition among the fifteen housing communities at UNC. Green Games seeks to promote student awareness regarding issues of campus sustainability, energy and water conservation, waste reduction, recycling and other environmental concerns. The aim is to present opportunities for students to learn about these issues from one another and encourage them to incorporate what they've learned into their daily routines on campus.

RHA's Enhancement System

The Enhancements system is managed by the Residence Hall Association (RHA) to provide useful items to residents that enhance their on-campus living experience. Enhancements can vary from movies, cookware, sporting goods, housekeeping items, board games, video game systems, pool and ping pong tables to picnic tables and grills. Enhancements can be found in your community office. Currently there are over 4,000 items in the enhancement system throughout campus. Find out more here:
