View towards the High Table in the dining hall of Exeter College, Oxford.

The High Table is a table for the use of fellows (members of the Senior Common Room) and their guests at Oxford, Cambridge, Dublin and Durham colleges, and other, similarly traditional and prestigious academic institutions (such as University of London; University of Manchester and University of Bristol in the UK, and The University of Trinity College and Massey College at the University of Toronto). The table is normally but not always on a raised platform and at the end of the dining hall, although not always. On more formal evening occasions, dinner jackets are worn. It is also normal to wear academic gowns.
