SBS Hall Emergency Mobile: x57648
The hall actually consists of two buildings – Southwell (SW) and Bernard Sunley (BS).
The hall was created through the merger of SH and BS following a College review in 2011 and is now one of three halls of residence located around Evelyn Gardens.
Living in Southwell and Bernard Sunley is an experience. Sharing a room, interacting and meeting people of different nationalities and customs will result in friendships for a lifetime.
The Colour Groups
Students in the hall are split into eight groups (based on colours), with most further split into two smaller groups, associated with the kitchens they use. Each colour group has a different member of the Wardening team responsible for their wellbeing, and a different Hall Senior per kitchen group, as a first point of contact. There are a number of ways you can contact the warden in charge of your group. All live in the hall, so you can knock on their door or send them an email for a face-to-face meeting.
The Wardening team of Southwell and Bernard Sunley is here to promote and encourage activities that will improve your social life, and make your studies at Imperial something to remember. Throughout the academic year, we organise social events (film, video and restaurant nights every week, parties, trips - Belgium, France - and lots of other events), we play football every Sunday, and we are open to any ideas for more activities.
Dr Nick Voulvoulis (a Reader in Environmental Technology), leads the Wardening team and has overall responsibility, as the Warden of the Hall. He is assisted by Dr Cleo Kontoravdi (a Lecturer in Chemical Engineering) the Assistant Warden of the Hall and seven subwardens, in charge of the seven colour groups that the hall is divided into. Mr. Charles Betts (a Research Postgraduate in Mechanical Engineering), Mr. Michael Cecchini (a Research Postgraduate in Chemistry), Mr. Nicholas Lambert (a Research Postgraduate in Mechanical Engineering), Mr David Williams (a Research Postgraduate in Civil Engineering), Miss Red Elmahdi (a Research Postgraduate in Medicine), Miss Elpida Episkopou (a Research Postgraduate in Electrical Engineering) Mr. Aravinth Thiyagarajah (a Research Postgraduate in Civil Engineering) and Miss Emma Johnson (an MRes student in Life Sciences) are the subwardens.
