Why it's worth visiting International House

The International House is a nice open space to sit and study with friends. 

The facilities are nice and give opportunity to heat the lunch in microwave and to get a nice coffee or tea as a motivation to study. The sofa area also gives the opportunity to relax in the break. The many charging possibilities also makes it very suitable for a bigger group to study together! Overall there’s a really nice vibe to the place, which makes the place feel like a second home.
