Living at home

You may consider living at home and travelling into university. Many local Imperial students already do this to cut down on living costs. Rest assured, there are plenty of opportunities to make sure that you feel part of the Imperial community from day one: 

Living at home

During your first few weeks at Imperial, there are loads of activities you can join, so you can meet new friends and feel part of the Imperial community. Fairs, quizzes, bar nights, bandeoke, talks – there’s something for everyone. 

The Students’ Union is a community of all our students working to achieve the best experience for every student. Every one of the Union’s members is able to lead, create and influence change in every one of our activities, campaigns and services. 

Getting involved in student activities is a great way to meet new people. There are over 370 clubs, societies and projects which are all student-led and student-run. This is one of largest varieties of student led activities at a University in the UK. 

You’re guaranteed to find a group that shares your interests, and if not, create your own!
