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

Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

Why do I do this?

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

If you would like to help with unanswered questions check out the first part of the list here and don't forget the second part of the list here.

Or if you have questions, get in touch with Puddles the Monkey.

Hi there, I can tell you about the laundry situation at St Mary's College. I assume it is similar to Hatfield's so hopefully this will help you out.

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
