A staff room (more commonly known as a teacher's lounge or faculty lounge in the United States and Canada and as a common room in British independent schools) is a room in a primary school, middle school, high school, college and/or university where the teachers and/or school staff talk to each other, discuss work, eat, drink and socialise. In primary school there is usually just one staff room, while in middle school, high school, college and/or university, there can be multiple staff rooms. Most staff rooms usually have kitchens, desks, tables, and chairs. Some staff rooms even have television sets.
The term is not used to refer to a general kitchen area, for example in an office.
