Clark Atlanta University has laundry facilities available to students in each residence hall on campus.

Each laundry room is equipped with both modern and highly efficient washers and dryers.

CAU provides this service to our students to make their lives a little easier.

Connected Campus Laundry Rooms

Many people tend to do their laundry at similar times, which often result in long wait times for available washers and dryers. In response to this dilemma and requests for greater control over laundry activities, CAU has installed an internet application called LaundryView.

LaundryView allows students to save time by providing the status of laundry room equipment in connected laundry rooms through a web browser.

CLICK on the Laundry room with links below and see the status of the machines.

The PAWCard office will need to confirm that you are financially enrolled and have a charge on your Banner Account in order to provide access to the residence hall.

  6. Why did my PAWCard stop working? There are a number of reasons why a PAWCard may stop working. Some of the more common reasons area as follows:

  • You are using a card that you replaced
  1. I lost my new card but found my old card, can I get the old card activated? Unfortunately, we cannot activate an old card once it has been replaced. Every PAWCard has a 16-digit number that is unique to each card. When we replace a card, we change the 16-digit number, which retires the old number. The system remembers that number and will not allow us to reuse it again once it has been retired. You will have to purchase another PAWCard, with a $25 replacement fee.
  2. What do I do if I cannot find my PAWCard but not able to purchase a new one right away? If you are not able to locate your PAWCard you can go on-line to CAUPAWCardCash to deactivate card or you can come to the PAWCard Office and we can deactivate your card for you. This will prevent any unauthorized transactions on your account. If you find it, you can sign in and re-activated your card or come to the PAWCard Office.   If you are not able to find your card, you may request a new card by visiting the PAW Card Office. The replacement card fee is $25.
  3. How can I add funds to my PAWCard? Students, faculty, staff log in with your University credentials (username and password) at:  or come to the PAWCard Office.
  4. How can a parent or relative make a deposit? Click “Make a guest deposit” on the login page.  No need to login.  Please be sure to know the student University ID # that is receiving the deposit!
  5. How long before the money appears on my PAWCard account? Immediately!  Once the credit card transaction successfully processes, the money is instantly added to your PAWCard Cash account.
  6. I see my credit\debit card has been charged, however the funds are not posted to the PAWCard Cash account.  How do I get my money back on my credit\debit card?  If your credit card has been authorized for the purchase but a system problem prevented the funds from being added to the PAWCard, the transaction has automatically been voided. The funds will be returned to your credit\debit card based on the terms of the issuing bank of your credit\debit card.  This can take 2-5 business days depending on the issuing bank’s policy.
  7. What happens to the money on a lost card?   Any funds left on your card will be transferred to your new card. New cards can be obtained from the PAWCard Office for a fee of $25. Please be certain to deactivate your card on the online card office.  The PAWCard Office is not responsible for funds used on a lost or stolen card.
  8. Can I get a refund of unused funds on my card when I graduate or leave CAU?  Yes, balances over $10 can be refunded back to your student account.  A refund request form must be submitted before a refund can be processed.  Upon receipt of a refund request form a refund will be issued to your student account less a $10.00 processing fee.  If a student does not owe the University any monies then he/she should expect a full refund for the remaining amount of the Panther PAW Cash Account less an administrative fee of $10.00 for account closure.
