If you lose your laundry chip it is important that you let us know as soon as possible so we can disable your chip.

Paying for laundry
Log in to the self-service portal to transfer money to your laundry account. The payment service is secure, and you will be given some options regarding how much money you would like to transfer. You may use the washing machines right away after a transfer.
If you have transferred too much money into your laundry account, you may login and send the money back to your bank account. It will be around 24 hours before you get the money back at your bank account.
Røstad in Levanger: It is so easy to do your laundry at Røstad. You don`t even have to bring laundry detergent or think about how much soap you should use. The machine takes care of everything. Use of washing machine costs NOK 25, - per washing machine, and use of dryer is free. Detergent is included in the price.
Bodø: Use of a washing mashine is from 12 NOK and a tumble dryer is from 10 NOK. (Some laundry facilities have automatic dosing of laundry detergent and the prices may vary).
Book a washing machine online
Booking can be done either online or directly in your laundry. The reservation is valid for 15 min after reserved time. If you arrive 15 minutes late, the machine is released and others can use the washing machine.
If you do not wish to book time, you can use available machines in the laundry. Only washing machines can be reserved. If you wish, you can go directly to the laundry and start one of the available machines without having reserved in advance.
A regular laundry contains 2-3 liters of water. This means that if you hang the laundry to dry in the apartment, without venting well, this can cause mites and bacteria. We recommend using a dryer as much as possible.
If you have no other option than to hang the laundry inside your home, it is important that you ventilate well.
Reminder on text message
In the laundries in Bodø it is possible to get a reminder about your reservation, or that the laundry and/or tumble dryer are done.
You decide how long up front you would like to receive the reservation reminder, within 24 hours before the reservation. You will not be noticed if you book a period that has already started.
When you start the washing machine in the laundry, you may ask to be noticed when the washing machine and/or tumble dryer are ready, by receiving a text message. This will only work with Norwegian numbers. Press the display and add your mobile phone number. The next time you use your chip in the laundry, the number will be remembered. 5 minutes before the machine is ready, you will receive a text message.
Reminders can be activated both in the laundry and online. The service is free of charge.
You can report erros at the laundries from the app Studentinord bolig or via My page on desktop.
