ANNOUNCEMENT REGARDING WASHSTATION LAUNDRY
For the past three months, the Student's Association has been responding to complaints by students
about the cost, quality and convenience of laundry services in halls of residence. After a sustained campaign and negotiations with Washstation, we are delighted to announce that Washstation have agreed to the following changes:
1) Washstation will overhaul its website based on student feedback, and, pending approval by the University IT Department, will also change it's top up system next year to an app-based one that will allow more precise payments.
2) In order to increase transparency and accountability, Washstation will hold public meetings in every hall of residence in St Andrews, where students will have the chance to give them feedback.
3) Washstation will put a portion of their profits into a fund that will provide free washes to students in financial hardship.
While we still have a lot of progress to make, this is a huge step in the right direction.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the campaign and made this happen!
