During the semester, Elliott and its study spaces, meetings rooms, classrooms, and basement bar are open to students, faculty and staff from early in the morning to late at night (though for precise opening times, visit the Facebook page). It is mostly used for academic purposes like study sessions, paper writing sprints, and stats project meetings, but Elliott is also open to helping you organize parties, society events, and guest lectures, and allows you to book a classroom or meeting space if you need it. Even just having lunch or a coffee with a friend in the Mensa is not unheard of.

Common House Elliott is located in the former post office of Middelburg and is located in proximity of the main academic buildings. It was officially opened in 2014, and has since been the common living room for all students, creating a cozy and welcoming environment for students to get together, study, and party.
