For myself and thousands of other students it is a struggle to do laundry. The cause of this is because the majority of us use debit card for payments and therefore don't often carry change around. As a result we have to use the ATM and buy something from the shop on campus, wasting a lot of time.
In addition, I don’t always have the correct amount of change such as one occurrence, I had to pay £1.50 rather than £1.20, as I didn't have 20p. If this happened every single time I did my laundry - I would waste a lot of money.
However I am here to create a solution for this problem that myself and students everywhere experience. I believe all universities should provide change dispenser machines in their laundry rooms.
