Take a 360 tour of Eastside

Eastside Halls are located within Prince's Gardens, just across the road from the main South Kensington campus. They are sited adjacent to Southside Halls of Residence.

The modern Eastside-Southside residential complex provides a convenience store, two common rooms and an on-site student bar and restaurant. It is also located next to our flagship sports centre, Ethos, offering student memberships.

Eastside is comprised of three adjoining halls:

  1. Gabor Hall was named after Dennis Gabor, a Hungarian-British electrical engineer and physicist who fled to the UK from Nazi Germany in 1933 and later became the inventor of holography, for which he received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1971. Gabor joined Imperial College in 1948 and remained here until his retirement in 1967.
  2. Linstead Hall was named in honour of Sir Patrick Linstead, a prominent English chemist who later became the 7th Rector of Imperial College.
  3. Wilkinson Hall is named in honour of Sir Geoffrey Wilkinson, Nobel Laureate of Chemistry in 1973 and Professor of Inorganic Chemistry at Imperial College.
