How To Assess

A better question, therefore, is what is the appropriate ratio of washers and dryers to apartment units.

If there is one washer and dryer and only 4 apartments, well that’s great. But if there is one washer and dryer for 50 apartments, that’s not so good.

On average, we estimate a typical apartment with on-site laundry, has about 1 washer/dryer pair per 15 units. The leading association for multi-family laundry suggests young working adults should have 1 Washer / Dryer pair for about every 10 to 15 apartment units. The recommended ratio is less so for student housing.

What Happens In the Real World

The number of laundry facilities available in an apartment complex will depend on the size of the complex and the degree of luxury.
