Washing machines and dryer
There are washing machines and dryers in the ground floor of each hostel building at your disposal. To use them you need an aktivatet UniCard, charged with eneugh money (activation (every semester) and charging can be done in the canteens (Mensa) for example). Washing or drying costs you 2€ per cycle.
In order to start a machine, insert your UniCard into the automat in the washing room, choose the machine your clothes are in and acknowledge. Close the door of the machine after loading it, adjust the wash settings and push the start button. The display now tells you how long you have to wait until you can pick up your washed stuff again.
So that the machines maintain for a long time and everybody can wash his stuff withoutpollution etc., there are certain rules hung out in the washing rooms, that need to be followed.
The rules can be read once again here as well: Datei:Waschraum Aushang.pdf
