    Do you think that a cleaning rota for a flat at uni is a good idea?
    As in, everyone clears their own mess but bigger stuff (e.g. vacuuming the floor) is on a rota

    It works for some, it doesn't for others... depends on your housemates. It worked for me with who I lived in 2nd year, but there was a lot of us... in the following years we didn't have one and that worked too. I think when you're in a shared uni house you do have to accept to some extent others don't have the same cleaning standard as you and it's going to be messy, especially with so many people in the house. If you want to clean it then cool, but you can't really make an issue unless it's actually unhygienic.

    if it works it's great and if it doesn't people get even more angry than before

    I've lived in a house where we had a rota + each week someone was responsible for kitchen, someone else for living room + hall, someone else for bathroom and it swapped around - we all took our turns and cleaned up and it kept things decent and everyone was happy - but I've also seen them implemented and ignored and then it just exacerbates things

    Great idea, doesn't always work out in practice. You can't guarentee everyone will stick to it or do a good job of their bit.
