Laundry and Linen Room

Laundry Facilities

Newnham has a few laundry rooms throughout the college. These can be found in Old Hall, Sidgwick and Peile. Those staying in RFB due to the building work will also have card access to a laundry room in that building. Both washing machines and tumble dryers are provided. The washing machines cost £1.40 per wash and tumble drying costs 20 pence for 8 minutes (save up those 20ps and £1 coins!)

There are also a couple of drying rooms, one in Old Hall and one in Peile. These rooms are very hot and have laundry racks on which you can hang your clothes to dry. There are also irons and ironing boards in the drying rooms and a laundry room on second floor Peile.

Linen Room

The college has a linen room located in Sidgwick where, once per week, you can exchange the linen provided by college. Take your old sheets, to the linen room and the staff will give you a fresh set. Of course you are welcome to bring and use your own sheets/towels as plenty of us do!

Opening hours:

Monday-Friday: 8-10.30am

Wednesday: 1-2.30pm

Closed on Saturdays and Sundays except for occasional openings on Saturday at the end of term. Check the notice board outside the linen room and look out for emails notifying you of this.

During the Long Vacation the linen room is only open Monday 8-10.30am
