There is a launderette on the Kingsway and also 1 in Uplands and Hafod. This appears normal cost.

Could you use the laundrette on the campus

This appears to be normal cost. Why cant you wash clothes where you are living. Most houses and halls have laundry facilities.

I mentioned for you very dirty disgusting smell
Have you tried running a washing machine cleaner through the machine? Worth a punt for a couple of quid.

Either something like this or most supermarkets will do their own.

Unfortunately because no one wants to pay the occasional £2 to service the machine, that's how shared ones get in this state. You can also use bicarb or soda crystals. These things literally cost pennies but students just can't be bothered to pull the detergent drawer out now and then, or dry inside the seal. Apparently the machine just stays clean by magic.

Have you raised it with the accommodation provider?
