    In my halls, it was a rip off to the point where I would try my hardest to do as little washing as possible.

    I think it was £2.50 to wash and £2.50 to dry. The washers were not laundrette size, they were average size which meant it would cost me about £10 a week for my clothes, bedding and towels.
    I would have used a clothes airer to dry them but literally had no room for one.

    There's only laundry facilities in Kilvey and Cefn Bryn (which I assume costs the same), and you can use either of them regardless of which hall you're in.

    The above poster said they're really small washers.

    That poster also said it costs more. They're not massive but I found they were big enough for beddings, towels and some clothes. If you have loads of stuff then it could take two washes.
