That's very true. I might use "cafeteria" in place of "refectory" if I were
worried about context, but it's not really an exact analogue. When I was in
high school, we didn't really have a kitchen separate from the cafeteria,
either. They had a baked potato bar that was technically in the area where
the food was prepared, even.
