Laundrettes on campus

Each hall of residence has its own launderette that is open 24 hours a day.

To use the launderettes download the Circuit Plus App.   You can set up an account by registering your email and creating a password.

Top up with credit using PayPal or FreedomPay.

We have posters in place in each laundrette to explain how to do this in detail.

If you don't have a smart phone and are therefore unable to use the app, please contact Student Services in the Tawney Building, 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday or email

Costs and approximate times are as follows:

  • The washing machines cost £2.90 and take around 40 minutes
  • The Tumble Dryers cost £1.15 and take around 30 minutes

The app has all the information you need, so just follow their instructions.  There are clear contact numbers displayed in the launderettes for any assistance or help if needed.

Please note that the washing machines do not have a drawer for putting in washing powder and conditioner (fabric softener); you need to load this directly into the drum of the washer or use a 2 in 1 that includes conditioner (the conditioner can’t be added separately as you can in a domestic machine).

Please do not dry your washing in your room or the blocks landing areas - this can cause condensation and damp issues which can lead to mould -  please read your Tenants’ Handbook for guidance on this.

The laundry equipment is managed and maintained by an outside provider, Circuit, who look after the machines and deal with any faults. If there is a problem with any of the machines please ring Circuit 0800 0924068. Quote your location and the nature of the fault.
