Laundry Room

The laundry room has two washers and two dryers. Laundry detergent and dryer sheets are not provided. There is space in the laundry room to store these items. The washers are $0.50 and the dryers are free! They are used on a first come first serve basis. Please sign up on the white board when you put a load in so you can be found if necessary. If we are all considerate of others, we should have no problem sharing the laundry room. Please do not put other people’s clothes in the dryers, and please do not do laundry for people that do not live in Zoe. Be respectful and do not take others’ clothing from the laundry room as well. Don’t forget: the fan must be on when using the dryers, and the lint trap must be emptied after each load!

Storage

Storage space is available in the following: Storage Closet, which is located off the dining room; Storage Room off the back door entrance (for bikes); and Storage Spaces in the TV Lounge area. Everyone is allowed a spot for one suitcase or one box and all unused house furniture may be stored in one of these places. Nothing can be stored on the floor due to fire codes. Your room key will open any and all of these storage areas available.

Mail

The mail is delivered to the back door Monday through Saturday around 1:00pm. The mail is left in the dining room for residents until the mail sorter has time to sort it. Outgoing mail can be placed on the ledge by the back door. Your mailing address is:

Your Name
915 West Johnson Street # (your room number)
Madison, WI 53715

Maintenance/Repairs

If there is anything that needs to be repaired or replaced throughout the year, let the president know. Sign the maintenance sheet outside the President’s room and leave a note on her white board or in her mailbox as a follow-up.

Make sure to let the President know as well if the problem has been fixed so that the same issue doesn’t get reported multiple times.

Parking

There are six parking spaces available behind Zoe Bayliss for residents who sign a parking contract. Spaces are allocated on a first come, first serve basis.

There is also street parking available through the city of Madison. You can to take a copy of your lease to the municipal building, pay $25, and then you will be able to park in any of the two hour street parking places in our zone (the box enclosed by Park, Randall, Johnson, and Regent) for up to 48 hours.

High-speed wifi Internet is provided throughout the building. We use the campuswide UWNet and eduroam networks to get on the Internet. There is also an ethernet jack in the room in case residents want to use wired Internet.

Telephone Bills

Each resident is responsible for her own telephone service. Phone jacks (one per room) are available for hook-up.
