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 at the University of Toronto) — the High Table is a table for the use of fellows (members of the Senior Common Room) and their guests.
The table is normally 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.
