About Elliott

About Elliott

Education is far more than just books, professors and exams. The Common House is a place that serves as a social hub, a centre for all students but also professors and staff members to come together and truly develop themselves in a social setting – be this through working on group assignments, participating in for instance debates, theatre plays, conferences or art groups or just through sharing a meal or drink.

Elliott is located in a historic building very close to the school buildings. Having officially opened its doors in April 2014, Elliott is fully equipped with a student restaurant, study lounge, classrooms, meeting rooms, a bar and more.

Essential for the existence of Elliott is the dedication and enthusiasm of a large pool of student volunteers. From preparing sandwiches to pouring beer: without volunteers Elliott would just be an empty shell. Want to know more? Read here about our organisation.

The Common House is a place that serves as social hub, a centre for all students to come together and truly develop themselves in a social setting – be this through working on group assignments, participating in for instance debates, theatre plays, conferences or art groups or just through sharing a meal or a drink. We want to stimulate students further to share their thoughts, their experiences and their opinions, to encourage banter, disputation and simple relaxation with friends – those intangible, non-graded aspects of an education that can make the years spent at a university truly exceptional. Elliott is a common living room for all students, because we feel that only through the added factor of social academics one can truly make the most of university.

Hope to see you there!
