    Okay so im a nice person. Arrived at my 9 room house and a few people didnt have pans and random other kitchen utensils so i shared mine (i over did it).
    2 months in and 1 guy STILL uses all my stuff, but refuses to wash it.

    I ask and ask, he always says oh yeah ill wash it but ive never seen him do it. He always tries to be charming but everyone can tell he doesnt care. Its not just my stuff he takes. Everyone has noticed food levels drop blatantly and when confronted he just denies it, yet i am certain it is him taking everything.

    What do we do?

    Well you can keep anything you can in your bedrooms. You can certainly keep all kitchen utensils in your room so they stay clean. You can also keep some food in your room if you're careful about storage/dates.

    If it's basics like milk/butter etc which are going missing you can try having a shared pot of money that you all buy them from and share them officially as it might be easier to get him to throw £5 in when everyone else does than to buy his own food - although my guess is he'd say 'I don't use them' and then continue helping himself.

    There isn't a lot else you can do. Even if you caught him all you can do is ask him to stop, your halls aren't going to care about some cereal going missing.
