    Hey! You can ultimately do as many washes as you like, you just have to pay for them all... For a wash and dry, it's £4 iirc, I think £2.20 for wash, £1.80 for dry (something along those lines!). To be honest, the driers are pretty crap, and so I recommend just washing, and drying back at your room if possible, as it saves a lot of money!
    Depending on where your accomm is - if you're in the Village, there's a laundrette there, and if you're on the main campus, you'll either go to the Street laundrette, or the one by the Med Centre. The Med centre generally always has machines free. The one on the Street can get very busy, especially in the evenings, but generally if you do have to wait, it's only 5-10 mins before a machine becomes free. Also, they're open 24/7, so I did a lot of 2am washes when I couldn't sleep... You can also get wifi in them, so can chill with iPlayer/movie...
