GHS is on the 7th floor of a historic building offering air conditioning, free WiFi and coffee as well as a fridge and microwave for those who want to bring their own lunch.

The interior design creates a modern African atmosphere and our student lounge and outside area give students the possibility to get some fresh air in between lessons.
