Breakfast is served in the ‘living room’.  Buffet style with cooked options, pastries , fruits and cereals.  There is even a waffle and boiled egg station.  Prefer your eggs scrambled?  This can be arranged!  Lactose intolerant/vegan?  Again, no problem, just ask a roommate for milk  alternatives.  Available 6.30am-10am weekdays and 7am-11am on weekends.

There is a pantry located in the living room.  Stocked with essentials, from food and drink, to toiletries.  Basically, it is a convenience store right at the foot of your door.  Fantastic for those who tend to forget their toothbrush!

There are different rooms to choose from.
