The Universities forums get a lot of questions that are unanswered. This is often because the OP's thread got missed - bumping threads gives them another lease of life and frequently results in someone seeing it and being able to respond

Hi - boring question - but my son is going to Hatfield and I was wondering how much the washing machine costs for a wash? Is it coin operated? Do the machines take liquid and powder? TIA
Mary's uses a card scheme run by No. 1 Circuit Laundry. You add funds to the card online and verify the top up at a little machine in the JCR. Then you swipe the card to operate the washing machines.
The majority of the washing machines require no liquid or powder as they have pumps which put this in for you. For these machines you pay £3.50 for an ECO wash, £4.00 for a Superwash or £4.50 for a Superwash Plus and they have a variety of settings (e.g. 40 degrees colours, 30 degree wool etc). The only between the prices seemed to be the amount of detergent that the machine used - but I am rather clueless in this field.
Some machines take your own detergent for a fixed cost of £3.50 but I have never used them so I am not really sure about anything past this.
The tumble dryers were free to use and ironing boards and irons were provided.
Hope this helps
