Lebanon Valley College Derickson Hall Laundry Upset

The students of Derickson Halls A&B are all incredibly upset about the removal of our personal washer and dryer units from our apartments at the end of this summer. 

When we originally signed up to live in Derickson A&B, we were informed we would all receive our own personal washer and dryer units in these apartments.  Many of the students who chose to live in Derickson A&B halls decided to do so due to the fact we would be able to experience independent living, especially moving away from traditional shared laundry facilities.  Learning we would no longer be receiving these amenities only one week prior to the start of this semester was a massive shock and upset for all of us.  We as students do not appreciate the lack of communication and information about the situation.  To be promised something and then having it taken away from you on a short notice is completely unacceptable, especially with absolutely no compensation. 

Due to this massive inconvenience and the now necessity to share only 4 washers and 6 dryers between 82 people, the residents of Derickson A&B halls are petitioning for two things.

Firstly, the students of Derickson A&B petition to have their individual washers and dryer units reinstalled into the apartments, so the students in years to come do not have to deal with the same inconvenience LVC imposed upon us this year. 

Secondly, the students of Derickson A&B petition to have reimbursement for the inconvenience of the removal of our promised utilities.  We believe since this was taken away from us, the apartments no longer hold their value as level one housing and should not be treated as such.  We petition that each student’s cost for living in Derickson A&B halls should be decreased by $300 to alleviate the massive inconvenience.

Thank you in advance for accommodating our concerns and keeping in mind the future alumni and benefactors of LVC.

Sincerely, the students of Derickson A&B
