The Wardens

We are a team of members of academic staff, post-graduate and under-graduate students. Our primary function is to give you support and advice on all the major and minor issues that you will encounter in coming to study and live at Imperial. We will also be helping you organise the social life of the Hall, and helping you to appoint a Hall Committee. The team operates a coordinated system of warden cover.

Hello and a warm welcome to Beit Hall! I'm Freddie, the Assistant Warden. Along with the rest of the wardening team, it's my job to ensure that you have a great experience during your time here at Beit. The team has been preparing for a cracking Welcome Week with lots of exciting things to do, make sure to check out all the details as they come through here on our website and facebook, and get involved with everything. We're also here to help when things aren't going so well. For problems big or small you can always get in contact with us and we'll work together to find a solution. My room is 420 on the South West 4 Corner.

Outside of wardening, I am a part of the teaching staff at the Dyson School of Design Engineering, m background is in theoretical physics, studying how light travels along graphene sheets. If I'm not in the office or running around Hyde Park, you can usually find me in my room, probably trying to play one of my musical instruments. Come visit for a tea and a chat!

Hi everyone, I'm Samata and I will be the subwarden for West Ground, but anyone is welcome to come over for a chat. This will be my sixth year at Imperial, as I'm currently in my second year of my PhD. I've been here for a while, so if you need anything (Imperial related or not) - I can hopefully help! I am a keen traveller and love sports, with bouldering, swimming and Muay Thai being my main interests at the moment. I’m from Nepal, but I grew up in the Philippines before moving to London for university, so I understand the struggles of moving to a new city and country. London (and South Kensington!) is a great place, with so much to offer - I would be happy to give all types of recommendations!

Hello, and welcome to Imperial! My name is Milia, and I’m a PhD student in the department of Bioengineering, where I’ve spent the last few years studying for my undergrad. During this time I’ve been heavily involved in all things Union-related, especially clubs and societies, so hopefully I can help if you have any questions on that front. There are so many things to do at Imperial and so many opportunities, so try to make the most of your time here. I’ve also lived in Beit for a while, and I can tell you with confidence that it is an amazing place to be, not only because of the location, but also because of the great vibes and community spirit.

My name is Morgan and I'm starting my first year of my PhD in the Aeronatics department. I've been at Imperial for fours years doing my undergraduate degree in Mechanical Engineering and I'm extremely excited to help you have as an amazing time as I have. I'm interested in anything outdoors and always up for a chat about robotics or space. Feel free to come talk to me about any issues. I look forward to meeting you all!

The Hall Seniors

These are a special group of undergraduate students asked to stay in Halls for an extra year. Their job is to take you under their wing and give you a proper introduction to the College from a student’s perspective. They also work closely with the wardening team to organise and run Hall events, especially for the first few weeks of the term – after which we will form a Committee from the new residents to take over some of these duties.

Terence

Hi guys, congratulations on getting into Imperial and welcome to Beit Hall! I’m Terence, a final year mechanical engineering student. I was born and raised in London, and I stayed in Beit as a fresher so I know it’s the best Hall to live in (you can wake up really late for 9am lectures). I'm a big fan of food, boxing, football and dance. Imperial can be a tough place to study at, but with a great team of Hall Seniors, tons of societies, events and London at your doorstep, your first year will be awesome. My door in the East Basement is always open, so always feel free to come and talk about anything.

Suraiya

Hello Freshers! Welcome to Beit and to Imperial! Congratulations on your offer! My name is Suraiya, I’m a second-year medical student. Having lived in Beit last year as a fresher, I can objectively state that Beit is the best hall. The mystery of how to pronounce it, only adds to its glamour and intrigue. I like tea, and if you do too, you are a wise one, my friend. I am known to offer excellent advice over tea. Which leads me to an important point, it is ok to feel stressed. If you are stressed and want to talk, or even just vent, you’ll know where to find me. All that remains to be said is soak it all up! You are a student in one of the most beautiful parts of London! Get to know South Ken, join some of the plethora of societies and make sure you sleep! (You have no excuse, you are literally so close to lectures). Looking forward to meeting you all in September!

Charlotte

Hey IC Freshers, welcome to Beit! I’m Charlotte, a 3rd year mechanical engineering student and 3rd time Beit resident. You will soon realise that Beit is the place to be and not just because we are in the middle of a golden triangle; lectures, the gym and Hyde Park are just 5 minutes away! I’m originally from the depths of the English countryside, but love living in London and am always up for exploring. I’m a sporty, health nut and love cooking. Why not join me for yoga and handstand practice in Hyde Park? IC has loads of societies on offer so branch out and get stuck in! I’m also passionate about the environment and am keen to spread the word about the best zero-waste cafes. Find me on the East Ground corridor, I’m always up for a chat. Looking forward to meeting you all and let the adventures begin…

Daniele

Hi All! I’m Dan, a second-year medical student at ICSM. Congratulations on securing a place at Imperial - all your hard work is about to start paying off! Beit Hall is a great place to live and there’s plenty to do in South Ken, and we’re here to help you make the most of it! In my spare time I enjoy acting, orienteering, and exploring London! If you have any questions about ICSM, Imperial, or student life in general, feel free to give me shout! I’ll see you all soon!

Tom

Hey guys! Welcome to Beit! I’m Tom, a second-year mechanical engineering student. I was lucky enough to stay in Beit during my first year, so I know it’s the best hall to live in. I spend most of my free time exercising, watching movies and listening to music. With some of London’s greatest attractions at your doorstep, there is plenty to see and do. Studying at Imperial can be tough but the team here at Beit are here to ensure that you have a memorable first year and that there is always someone to talk to if you need it. You can find me at W3 if you’d like to drink some tea, want advice or if you just want to chat. I look forward to meeting you! :D

Ayush

So you're finally here, Imperial College - congratulations on making it this far! My name's Ayush, I'm in my third year of physics. The next few years of your lives are going to be INCREDIBLE! There's literally hundreds of societies where you can meet new people, go on insanely subsidized trips abroad (skiing, surfing, skydiving). There's chances to do things you wouldn't even consider possible before - like travelling to the other side of the world on an impulse, by raising money for charity at the same time. The next few years are truly yours, so get out there and make them the ones you'll truly remember! Also it doesn't hurt to live in Beit which is only 30 seconds away from the campus, and the most social hall of them all :').

Ben

Hey guys, I'm Ben and I'm a second year Computing student. Congrats on getting into Imperial! You are going to love Beit. You are literally 3 minutes from lectures, hyde park and some amazing museums. We will organise great socials throughout the year. I grew up in Windsor (sorry about the posh accent), only 40 minutes away from London and I love the gym, good movies, volunteering and pretty much anything outdoors. I was also a Beit fresher last year and I know first hand how much you are going to enjoy this year. I will be the hall senior for E3 so if you want to chat please come knock on my door.

Nan

Hello Freshers and welcome to Beit! I’m Nan, a second year Biochemistry student, singer (I rarely stop), actor and one of your Hall Senior’s this year. First, congratulations – you’ve made it here! Now the hard work really begins, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t room for fun… London is one of the most vibrant and beautiful cities in the world with so much to see or do, and Beit, only 2 minutes from the main campus, is the focal point for all the main parties and events, so make the most of it! Coming to university is a big change, some find it harder than others, and that really is all right, but the best thing to do is be yourself. If you’re not so sure who that is yet, find yourself, try new things and dive in head-first; make mistakes (try to avoid the catastrophic variety) – it’s only natural – but above all, enjoy! And if there is ever a moment where you need some help or someone to talk to, then reach out – my door is always open – because it’s always better knowing that there’s someone who cares in your corner. So, have an amazing first year – and I can’t wait to meet you all!

Isabel

Hi everyone! Welcome to Beit and congratulations on becoming a student at Imperial! My name is Isabel and I am a third year Biochemistry student. I love Music and Sports (almost as much as going to nerdy talks or appreciating pineapple on pizza). I’m very energetic and active all the time, and I tend to talk a lot (you will have to stop me). I want you to know that you can talk to me anytime about anything, I’ll be very happy to provide feedback, guidance, opinion and support on any academic or personal topic. Starting university is a big step and might look challenging at the beginning, but we were all freshers at some point and we are here to help you make the most of your time! So take every opportunity, explore new interests, make new friends and have good fun! Really looking forward to meet you all!

Aishwarya

Hey everyone and congratulations on getting into Imperial! I’m Aishwarya and I’m a final year Biomedical Engineering student. I lived in Beit as a fresher so I know you’re gonna have a blast! There’s nothing better than living so close to uni and in the heart of London. I love to go exploring around London to check out the Instagram hot spots and go to the musicals and concerts London has to offer. I’m also a huge foodie so you’ll probably find me cooking or baking something in the kitchen that I most probably don’t have the time for (I wasn’t a great cook when I first started uni so there’s hope for you all!). You can find me in E4 if you’d like a chat or a baking buddy! See you guys very soon!

Tade

Hi, Tade here! I’m a third year studying Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Congrats on getting into Imperial College! The next few years certainly promise to be an interesting ride. I love a good story, discovering new music and trying out new food recipes (though they hardly ever turn out quite right). Please feel free to holler at me if you’ve got any questions or are simply just looking for someone to listen. You can find me on S3. Looking forward to meeting you all.

Shravan

Hey guys! Congrats on securing a place at Imperial, and Beit – its coolest hall! My name is Shravan. I’m a second year doing JMC (stands for Joint Maths and Computer Science). On top of that, I play drums in a band, DJ at Music Tech Society, and am involved in Model United Nations. If you are looking to get involved in any of these activities, or need a concert buddy for any of the many great gigs in London, give me a shout! I can’t wait to meet you all and help make sure your first year is amazing!

Roxanne

Hello IC Freshers, welcome to Beit! Congratulations on securing your offer and start a brand new journey—it’s gonna be more exciting than you could imagine! I’m Roxanne, a second-year mathematics student. I’ve taken in various extracurricular activities, including RCSU, Mathsoc and CSSA. Feel free to take a thorough look around during your first few weeks and get yourself exposed to the immersing culture of Imperial! If you would like to seek any advice, I’m here for you any time! It had been one of the pleasant memories for me to live in Beit for my first year and I hope you could enjoy living here too! Get excited to meet lots of interesting people, and I can’t wait to meet all of you!

Martina

Hi! Welcome to Imperial College London, and welcome to your new home away from home - Beit Hall. My name is Martina, a third year Mechanical Engineer who enjoys playing the piano and learning languages. It's your first year at University! Whether you've been a Londoner your whole life or you're moving here from a different country, the unknown is always a bit daunting. Don't worry, us Hall seniors and the Wardening team are here to make sure your first year is fun and full of great memories. I know what it's like to struggle with some aspects of University, and I hope any problems you have, be they personal or academic (or how to cook a fantastic carrot cake), you feel you can come to me for help. I will offer my best advice and maybe even some comforting sweets too, I have quite a sweet tooth and there's always some lying around. See you soon!
