Move in Day

Arrivals day

If arriving after 5pm on move in day, you must inform us immediately or else your room may be reallocated to another student.

The Wardening team and Hall Seniors will be happy to help you move in. When you arrive we will assign keys to you and show you to your room.

If you are driving in with family or friends, you will need to get a parking permit from us on the day. Access to Parsons House by car is made via Margravine Road and turning onto Claybrook Road itself. The permit will allow you to park for a short while (up to 15 minutes) for offloading in the front of the Hall. After that you will be able to use nearby paid for (campus) or free (outside) parking bays.

Freshers Week/Fortnight

The first two weeks, including the moving-in weekend, are called the Freshers Fortnight. It is packed with various events organized by the Wardening Team, your Department and the Imperial College Union. It includes various dinners, tours, welcome talks, etc.

Many of the Freshers’ Week events organized by the Wardening Team are either heavily subsidized or free. More details about the events, tickets and payments will become available on our website in due course. We strongly encourage that you attend all events, as the Freshers Week is an excellent opportunity to meet a lot of colleagues, many of whom will become your lifelong friends.

For information on what is included in the Hall, please see the About Parsons page. If you have any further questions please feel free to contact us at the address below we will endeavor to answer your queries.
