Take a 360 tour of Southside

Southside Halls are located within Princes Gardens, just across the road from the main South Kensington campus. They are sited adjacent to Eastside Halls.

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

Southside is comprised of four adjoining halls:

  • Falmouth Hall is named after the 8th Viscount Falmouth, chairman of the College’s governing body from 1947-1952. This was a time of great change and expansion for the College and Falmouth was the chairman of the Finance and Executive Committee at Imperial for 25 years.
  • Keogh Hall is named in honour of Alfred Keogh, 2nd Rector of Imperial College. Keogh was a decorated medical doctor in the British Army.
  • Selkirk Hall is named in honour of William Selkirk, a successful businessman and mining engineer. Selkirk donated a sum of money for a hall of residence to be built in 1945. Over the years, the hall has been refurbished and redeveloped until, in 2005, work began to re-build the halls of residence on the south side of Princes Gardens and develop the Selkirk Hall as you see it today. 
  • Tizard Hall is named after Sir Henry Thomas Tizard, an English chemist and inventor, and the 4th Rector of Imperial College. A well-known outcome of his work in chemistry is the modern ‘octane rating’ used to classify petrol.
