SAMS is proud to begin providing Master's students with free snacks and drinks, available in the "SAMS" basket in the Master's Room on the ground floor. Stop in with your own cup or thermos and help yourself to some tea or coffee to keep you going. There is also a jar for donations if you want to help support SAMS' efforts. Good luck out there and happy studying!
Additionally, SAMS will now also be providing washing up liquid to go along with our new scrub brush in the Common Room in the basement of the IoA. Students can now wash up their lunch wares or reuse clean utensils and mugs!
