Students chatting in kitchen in halls

Most of our first year students choose to live in College accommodation. Support in halls starts from your very first day when you’ll find lots of current students on hand during moving in weekend to welcome you to your hall and help you with your luggage.

Wellbeing support

All halls have their own Residential Support team who are on call 24/7 to look after your wellbeing and maintain a friendly living environment so that all residents can study, sleep, relax and enjoy themselves.

Get involved in as many trips as possible: it’s usually subsidised by the halls so lots cheaper, plus you get to go with all your friends!"

They also play an important part in the social life of the hall, organising a rolling programme of events such as theatre trips, barbeques, cinema trips and end-of-term parties to bring everyone together. This is supported by the Hall Activities Fund, which all residents contribute to (£2/week in 2017–18).

The team includes a number of returning students, known as Hall Seniors, who can offer first hand advice on making the most of life at Imperial.


Administrative support

Each hall has a Hall Supervisor or a Reception team to oversee the day-to-day running of the residence, so if you have any enquiries or want to report a maintenance issue there are people on hand to help you.

Safety and security

All of our halls have CCTV and swipe card or fob entry systems to maintain the security of residents. There is also a security office on campus that is manned 24/7 and mobile patrols for outlying halls.
