Woodward Buildings, located in North Acton,  is Imperial’s newest hall of residence. Construction of the hall was completed in summer 2015, ready for new first-year students in October, and will open for its first Summer season at the end of June 2016.

Rising to 19 storeys, the flagship new development will form a contemporary student village with cluster style apartments and generous communal space for students to enjoy.

Woodward Buildings is named after Professor Joan Woodward, a leading academic in Organisation Theory and the second woman to ever receive a chair at Imperial College. Woodward was a pioneer for empirical research in organisational structures and analytical frameworks that establish the link between technology and production systems.
