Common area
The common area is divided into three areas. On the ground floor you'll find a large common room with a TV, comfortable couch, table tennis, pool table and foosball. From there you can access a mezzanine level with couches, tables, board games, books and a vending machine. There is also a movie room - it's easily accessible from the large common room and feels like a cosy living room.

Study space
The study room is located on the ground floor next to the common room. It's separate from the common space to provide peace and quiet.
