So you are wondering how many washer and dryers are in an apartment building?
What if your apartment complex has 5 units or 100 units? Is 2 washers/dryers enough for 100 units? No! Now you see why it matters….
A better question, therefore, is what is the ratio of washer/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.
The number of laundry facilities available in an apartment complex will depend on size of the complex and degree of luxury.
Ask how many washer/dryer pairs are at your community per apartment, and where those machines are located in relation to your future apartment unit.
