Laundry intervention! Washed clothes, but no dryer and no space to line-dry...how can I make it so my clothes are minimally wrinkled and mildewy in the morning?

Did a big load of laundry (basically all my clothes...) before realizing that no dryer in the complex worked. It also ate my $1.50. I live in a studio apartment with no outdoor space: other than some hangers and a shower rod, there is really no place to stretch clothes out...even in those places there is really not the necessary air circulation. Any tricks to make sure my clothes don't end up with the over-the-top wrinkliness of poorly-dried clothes, and especially that they don't get that gross mildewy smell? I can dry them in a laundromat in the morning-- will that rectify both?
(side question: is it too petty to expect to be able to deduct the money eaten by the dryer from my rent?)
