The Common Room

Our chefs take the best of British and dishes from around the world to keep ISH’s stomachs full and people happy. The Common Room is somewhere for residents and staff to come together, bringing people from all over the world around one table to make friends and have fun.

We provide a free breakfast from 07:30-10:00 for all residents so you can roll out of bed, get some food with friends and head to uni happy. It makes your 09:00 lectures much, much easier. Make the most of those lazy weekend mornings too - we keep the doors open from 8 to 12 for you on Saturdays and Sundays.

Cooking together is a great way to learn new skills, meet people and try delicious foods that you wouldn’t even know about - but it’s not for everyone. Sometimes, it’s been a long day or you have a deadline and you just want a plate of something right then. The Common Room serves dinner from 18:00-20:00 every day - two hot options, one vegetarian, a soup station and generous salad bar plus drinks and desserts at student-friendly prices. We make it easy for you to load credit onto your ISH card too, so you don’t even need to bring cash.
