In my freshers year, I was assigned to Eastside Halls in Princes Gardens. Being an international student, it was great to live so close to campus, as it meant I didn't have to worry about travelling to university and all the associated travelling logistics (e.g. do I get a travel card? Which one? How do I even get to uni?). So that was great. The rooms themselves looked exactly as they do on the Imperial's website. Theres quite a lot of storage space, which I was surprised about. My floor had around 20 students living on it, and we shared a big kitchen together. I thought sharing a kitchen with this many people might be a problem, but it was actually much better than expected. Other facilities include the Imperial gym, which is a 1min walk from halls, that's also a perk! Throughout the year, halls also organise many social events, which is a great opportunity to meet other students from halls (especially in Freshers). However, my floor wasn't as social as other ones, which was a bit of a shame. Having said that, I made many friends on other floors, and other halls in Eastside/Southside, so that was good.
