As with the system of bells aboard ship, or the solemn order of prayer services in a monastery, the day at Unseen University appears to be regulated by its mealtimes, which rather like the Bells aboard a ship, seem to occur at two-hourly intervals throughout the day and night. Early Tea follows on from the mealtime variously known as Mid-Afternoon Snack or alternatively Afternoon Tea - well, Sherry, really and is suceeded two hours later by dinner.
