We all pay £1.5k+ to stay in Halls of Residence per term. For some of us, it uses up even more of our maintenance loan than we get. And the price of clean clothes could surely be included in that. To wash your clothes on campus, it costs £5 a go. If you have £4.50 on your account, you have to add another £5. This is extortionate. The amount of rent we pay should at least allow us all to have cheaper, or free launderette services. I have had to choose between food and clean laundry and chosen laundry on more than one occasion. Not eating is obviously not healthy. These are basic human needs, and we should not be charged quite that much for a single load of washing and drying.
