The management has not foreseen a laundry plan and therefore counts on the good will of all.
After every use of the laundry, the tenant has to ensure that all the machines, filters and floor are clean and that no object (detergent box, dry laundry, etc.) has been left behind.
Any breakdown or failure has to be notified to the caretaker immediately.

The tenant is responsible for the rented lodgings and the installations made available to him. The same applies to visitors.
The electricity costs of the buildings, of the common installations and of the lodgements are included in the all-inclusive charges.
The waste management is everybody's responsibility. EPFL is particularly sensitive about this question. The cooperative follows the same line.
The concept of waste management is posted in the reception area. Every tenant upon his arrival has to familiarize himself with it.
