Did you ask your college about an alternative way to pay for laundry without the app? In my experience so far, universities are fairly accommodating if it’s a service they run.
Tip: Don’t get too technical with your explanation about why it doesn’t work. Something simple like: “It’s incompatible and won’t run in your phone despite your best efforts to make it do so,” should be good enough.

Would something like the Aurora Store work for you?
Aurora Store (A Google Playstore Client) - https://f-droid.org/packages/com.aurora.store
I tried looking it and wasn’t able to find it. I ran into the same issue also this is my first time on Lemmy

Searching I couldn’t either. But setting the default app to open with play store links to Aurora found it and let me install it
I’m actually interested how do you do this
Settings > Choose default apps > Opening links > Aurora Store > Open Supported Links (on) > Supported Web Addresses (play.google.com [on], market.android.com [on])
With that any play store link ‘should’ open in the Aurora Store
you feel like it would be better to run it in a sandbox work profile with google services
Security risk ahead. Try looking for the apk and install it manually
Can you download the app on a nondegoogled phone through play and take the apk from that phone? Does it work that way?
As long as the app doesn’t require google play services then yep. I use apk extractor by meher on the play store. I’ve used it to transfer a few apps I paid for to a non-connected device and it worked.
then what are some reliable apk websites that are safe to.
