The laundry tracker system, Automatic Laundry, allows Southern residents to monitor the status of washers and dryers in the residence halls from the comfort of their own computers. The service is available at no charge to all housing students.

Using Automatic Laundry, students can locate an available washer/dryer in their residence hall and view how much time remains for the cycles on machines already in use. In addition, students can ask to be notified via email or text when a machine becomes available.

Most residence halls have recreation equipment available for residents' use including pool tables and equipment, foosball tables, and ping pong tables. Most halls also have common area lounges equipped with televisions and cable access for community viewing. Several halls now feature video game rooms (Brownell Hall, Farnham Hall, West Campus, and North Campus) and the North Campus recreation room is equipped with air hockey and a multi-game arcade cabinet. In addition, community lounges within buildings are often the sites for hall programming.
