Welcome to Xenia
Xenia is a Hall of Residence situated in Waterloo, at the heart of London. Xenia is owned and managed by Chapter 1, a charity that provides accommodation and support. It is just two minutes away from Waterloo station, and across the river from Embankment. The journey to College is less than 25 minutes door to door.
Xenia recently underwent extensive refurbishment and is opening for Imperial students this academic year. We hope to provide an environment where people can both achieve academically and enjoy the benefits of living in the heart of London. There will be organised events, regular trips to eat out or see shows and films, etc. The success of these events depends on you! Residents can organise and participate in Hall activities, with support from the Wardening team and Xenia staff.
We cater for the full diversity of Imperial’s student population including all disciplines and subject areas so finding friends with common interests will be no problem. Xenia is an excellent base to take advantage of all that Central London has to offer!
Full details about the hall can be found on this website and in the residents’ handbook (you will receive a printed copy on moving-in day).
