The summer school I am attending in Oxford is organized by the Statistics Department, but the Plant Sciences Department was kind enough to allow us to work in one of their computer rooms. Therefore we also drink our daily coffee in their common room. I think the lady that sells the coffee already knows all of us. She invited us last week for a barbecue that took place yesterday in the common room and the small garden next to it. We all got tickets for it, that were just 1 pound each (so basically we had free food and drinks) and headed for the common room, once more, yesterday at 16.00.
