I would encourage you to look at the included laundry programs that many campuses are running. Building the cost of laundry into rent removes the need for cards and or activation processes. It reduces maintenance calls and provides a more positive customer experience. The price is very modest and you can manage the revenue needs in a more predictable manner.
