The allocation procedure begins in early September and an accommodation offer will be sent to you by email. You will be asked to pay a £250 pre-payment fee in order to secure your room.

Once you have firmly accepted an academic offer from the College, you will receive an email from end of May 2013 onwards, with instructions of our online procedure. Please see our How to Apply web page for further information http://www3.imperial.ac.uk/accommodation/prospectivestudents/prospectiveundergraduatestudents/applicationprocess
Yes, you can visit during official College or Departmental Open Days but not at other times. Details on the College’s Open Days are available at Imperial Outreach.
College Open Day is 27 and 28 June 2013.
The offer of accommodation will be sent to you by email. We therefore advise that you regularly check your email account. You will be given four days to accept your offer of accommodation. On acceptance you will be asked to pay a pre-payment of £250 with your acceptance of a place. Payment must be received by the deadline date or your allocation will be cancelled.
No, the pre-payment fee is an advance payment to secure your accommodation and will be deducted from your final invoice. If you are paying the full accommodation fees for the whole year, please check the total fees prior to making the payment.
If you do not wish to accept the offer, please e-mail the Student Hub Team with your decision as soon as possible. This will enable us to reallocate the room. We regret that this is the only offer we can make and if you reject it, it is unlikely that we will be able to make an alternative offer.
If you change your mind about moving into College accommodation then you must immediately inform the Student Accommodation Centre. Please refer to point 1.6b & 1.6c of the Licence terms and conditions. Charges may apply
On and after 28 September 2013, as the halls will be closed for a week prior to this date. If you need accommodation before this date, please contact email@example.com and they will help you to find suitable short term accommodation.
All study bedrooms are equipped with a bed, study desk, chair, wardrobe, shelving, desk lamp, curtains, chest of drawers, notice board, book shelf/case. If you are diabetic and require a refrigerator in your room please email the Student Hub Team on firstname.lastname@example.org with subject heading “Refrigerator”, with your CID number.
Ordering bedding or a kitchen pack in advance is a great way of reducing the amount of stuff you bring with you and it removes all the hassle of shopping for the things you need!
You will also need to bring a network cable but, if you don’t bring one then you can purchase one when you arrive from the Imperial College Union shop.
We advise all students not to bring a car to the London campuses, as parking permits in College are only issued to students in cases of disability. Parking on London streets is strictly controlled and very expensive.
At the Silwood Park campus, there is parking for 25 student cars. Applications for permits should be made to Security Reception as soon after arrival as possible.
