FAQs

You Ask, We Answer

Laundry, Water, and Dry Cleaning questions 

Laundry Services

As much as you want- within reason! Each bag is designed to hold a maximum of 30 lbs of laundry and should close easily to ensure no clothing items are lost! If there is too much laundry in the bag (i.e. the bag can not close completely), we will not pick up the bag in order to ensure that your clothes do not fall out and get lost in transit. So make sure your bag closes completely!

No problem! If you forgot to leave your bag outside your door, please email firstservices@pennstudentagencies.com prior to 10 pm the night before the requested day for pick up.

firstServices prides itself on quality services. If any issue occurs, we do everything in our power to make things right! We have a Clothing Reimbursement Schedule as part of our Terms of Services where firstServices insures lost or damaged clothing up to $300 per bag. Please let us know of the situation within 24 hours in order to be eligible for a refund and to increase the chances of us locating the item.

Yes, but only with a special request. Our standard procedure is not to separate whites and colors, but we will do it if you put a note in the laundry bag to do so. Please put in a note in the laundry bag – where it is clearly visible if you need you colors and whites separated.

About Us

History

Penn Student Agencies began under FDR’s National Youth Administration, an early incarnation of the Federal Work-Study Program. Initially titled Self-Supporting Students, Penn Student Agencies made its first appearance on July 1, 1933 as a part of the University of Pennsylvania’s Placement Services Department.

Dry Cleaning

Today

The Dorm Laundry Service (first named firstLaundry; later renamed firstServices) was one of the three agencies under PSA. In recent years, firstServices has become a huge cultural success on campus, servicing a substantial portion of the freshman class and tending to the needs of upperclassmen and off campus residents as well.

As an entirely student-operated organization, firstServices has a lot of freedom to explore new ideas to better serve our customers. We provide easy-to-use laundry, dry cleaning, and water services, and are always looking for new ways to address the needs of Penn students. With a staff of over a dozen employees and hundreds of customers each semester, firstServices has become the most profitable agency within Penn Student Agency.
