I don't know about a coat program but at my college, residents traded in dirty sheets for clean ones at a central location.  I can see something like that of working for lab students - maybe once a week.

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Lab Coat Rental Program for Large University Chemistry Teaching Program

I am looking for a university that has experience with a lab coat program for undergraduates on a large scale.


I am developing a pilot in our organic chemistry lab which has 115+ students per class.  We are looking at a lab coat rental program that will provide laundered lab coats.  We are moving away from requiring students provide their own coats.


I am especially interested in the logistics of distributing coats to over a hundred students at once before each class.
