Sorry, the Alumni Visitor Centre is currently closed

The College is transitioning to remote running of the university in response to COVID-19, with minimal activity taking place on campus. The Alumni Visitor Centre will be closed until further notice. 

Come in, you're welcome!

Have you ever camped out in a coffee shop with your laptop? Or tried to hold a meeting in your home office, only to be interrupted by your cat / child / flatmate? Did you know that you could be using the Alumni Visitor Centre in South Kensington?

Open to all Imperial alumni, the Centre offers you space to work, relax, and network. We have a private meeting room which you can book for up to six people. And we provide you with free tea, coffee, cold drinks and biscuits. We have free Wi-Fi too, and there’s even a left-luggage facility.

We’re open for guests five days a week, and the centre can even be booked out of hours until 21.30 for alumni functions, like reunions or association meetings.
