The House Union/Commitee is voted in by all the residents at an official house meeting. The House Union represents the interest of the residents when dealing with the managing committee and directors of the college. Furthermore it should organise all internal activities such as the summer party and Christmas party as well as sport teams’ i.e. the football team.

Second in line to the internal administration are the Tutors, who are also spokesmen and contact persons for all residents. They advise and help new arrivals, organise independent events such as informative film viewings about specific countries etc.
