Sussex Estates and Facilities

Launderette

Opening times

8:00am – 12:00 midnight, 7 days a week

Location

Park Village Social Centre (main site)

The launderette is situated on the ground floor of the social centre in the Park Village residences on campus. Its facilities include television, campus wifi, vending machines and seating areas. It is the campus’ main launderette provided for all students and staff, as well as any society situated at the University. The launderette is open 8.00am to midnight, seven days a week.

The laundry staff are available from 8.00 am to 2.00 pm on weekdays, during which time service washes can be booked at the launderette. It is recommended that you book no later than 12:30 if you need a service wash the same day, as our staff are often busy with booked washes for most of this time.

We also operate a number of smaller self-service launderettes within the residences, located in Lewes Court, Stanmer Court and Northfield. These are in place for the students living here, and are not available to anyone not living within these residences.

During out of hours periods, such as after midnight and at weekends, the York House porters will open and lock all laundry facilities.

Circuit Laundry

As of 2017-18, all washing machines and laundry systems are now operated by Circuit Laundry, an integrated system that allows the easy payment and operation of washing machines. Simply sign up and download the app, available on all Apple and Android smart phones.

Circuit allows you to pay for laundry either by PayPal on the app, or by card both through the app or through a physical reader on the machines themselves, meaning that cash is no longer needed to use a washing machine or dryer. However, if you do not have access to a smart phone or credit card, the machines do still accept cash payments as well.

If you are experiencing an issue with the Circuit Laundry system, either with the app or the machines, contact Circuit on 01422 820360, or consult their website.
