    Would anyone use a 'pick up and drop off' laundry service for students if it was charged at your normal cost plus a nominal fee?
    Do you get fed up with the weekly chore and wasted time in the launderette
    or am I just lazy? :-)

    Launderette? Don't you just use the one in your house?

    Never been to a launderette in my life. Stick the washing in when I'll be in for a bit, hang it on the rack when done, put in drawers when dry- it's hardly hard work.

    It really depends on the cost for me.

    Halls, presumably.

    The on-site laundrette was £2/wash and £1/dry where I was. It's expensive enough already. I didn't waste time in the laundrette, it's about a minute job to put the laundry in and set it going. Come back in whatever time it says and chuck them in the dryer, or take them back and hang them up.

    In halls don't you get a laundry service included?

    If shared washer/dryer at uni accommodation counts as a laundrette then all it added for me was walking down a flight of stairs and setting a timer on my phone to know when to go get it since I can't just hear it. I wouldn't pay any fee to avoid such minor effort.

    It probably depends on the university/halls. The majority of ones I saw had communal laundrettes for the accommodation blocks or the whole site, where you just pay for use on the machines.

    I assumed it was a standard to get a laundry service included. All the halls at my uni get laundry and a cleaner.

    I have never heard about that university :erm:

    But I'm going to look for included laundry and stuff, I know that a few Cambridge halls do that, but that's all I know so far.
