Of course you can! We provide 2 well equipped kitchens for student use. Both kitchens have microwaves, refrigerators, instant boiling water, cafe bars and washing up facilities. Sometimes our students arrange mini-feast days when everyone brings food to share. We encourage this so that we all get to experience tastes and smells from around the world.
