Des Moines Register 02-06-07 E-mail alert: Laundry's done Students who live in the University of Iowa residence halls can now request automated e-mail alerts when their clothes have completed washing and drying cycles. Dorm dwellers at the U of I, Iowa State University and the University of Northern Iowa now can swipe their ID cards to have laundry charges added to their university bills. The U of I also has a new Web-based service called LaundryView that allows students to look online to see if there are washers available. U of I officials installed the LaundryView software last fall. The annual software fee is $13,000, paid for in part by raising costs of doing a wash by about 50 cents per load.
