The team

The Wardens

The Wardens play a big part in hall life by supporting you if you have any personal problems, dealing with emergencies and disciplinary matters (see hall rules), and ensuring that the hall runs smoothly.

Dan Balint


Welcome to Imperial! My name is Dan Balint; I am the warden of Linstead Hall and a Professor in Solid Mechanics in the Department of Mechanical Engineering. I live in the warden's flat on level 5 with my wife Lucy, daughter Cecily (Cece) and son Jesse.

I am from the States; grew up near Detroit, Michigan, attended Michigan State University for my undergraduate studies in Engineering Mechanics, then moved east to Cambridge, Massachusetts for a master's degree in Applied Mathematics and PhD in Engineering Sciences at Harvard, then further east to the original Cambridge for a post-doc in the same field, followed by a brief interlude in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania as a consultant and finally to Imperial where I have been for the last 17 years.

Apart from research, teaching and wardening, all of which I enjoy very much, I like photography, anything to do wtih Arsenal, going to art museums, travelling, reading books, listening to music, cooking, baking bread and the pursuit of a good night of sleep. I am here for you, so don't hesitate to get in touch. I wish you a very happy and successful year!

Tianxiao Wang


Greetings Linsteadians! A warm welcome to all of you. My name is Tianxiao (He/Him), and my friends would call me T (or Ti, both pronounced as tea). I am your subwarden on the M floor (room M24). I am a Design Engineering PhD student. University work, especially at Imperial, can be very stressful at times but you will get the support from the College and from us. I love both classical and jazz music, and enjoy cooking too. Food is for sharing - that's my motto. And sharing is about caring. I like science fiction and movies, and playing video games. At night, I would prefer peacefulness because that's very important for our mental health - but if you like parties and music gatherings, feel free to organise them as long as you make your neighbours happy too!

Sara Belazregue


Hi! My name is Sara and I am a 2nd year PhD student in the Department of Chemistry over at White City studying small molecule activation by transition metal complexes. I am a proud born and bred South Londoner; I attended King's College London for my undergraduate degree in Chemistry and Imperial for my MRes degree in Catalysis. In my free time, I love to paint (both acrylic and oil), read, visit art exhibitions - Renaissance art in particular (Leonardo Da Vinci and Caravaggio are my two all-time favourites), and go on very long walks in and around London. I'm always up for a chat so feel free to say hi whenever you see me about, I'm excited to meet/get to know all of you in the coming weeks!

Fernando Guntoro


Hey there, welcome to Imperial College! My name is Fernando, and I am originally from Indonesia. I’ve lived in the UK for 9 years now and have spent the better half of it in London! I’m currently doing a PhD in Epidemiology, investigating the various factors that influence COVID-19 severity and Long COVID. Outside of studies, I enjoy socializing through playing badminton and board games. I also enjoy going to the cinemas and theatres, which is always inevitably followed with stuffing my face with a lot of sushi. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if you ever need help or advice, or simply to chat. I look forward to meeting you all!

The Hall Seniors

Hall Seniors are students who have already lived in Imperial halls, chosen by the wardening team to carry out various roles to keep the hall going. Linstead Hall has 5 Hall Seniors this year. You can knock on their doors for anything and they will be more than happy to help.

Reha Chandresh

Greetings! I am Reha Chandresh, a 4th year Geologist (a rocc nerd) and this year I will be serving as the Linstead Hall Senior on the 3rd floor (I live in 315).

First of all- Welcome to Linstead, your new home! I was lucky to have been allotted Linstead Hall in my 1st year. I couldn’t have asked for any better. It’s a great hall to be in, and I’ve had the time of my life, despite the COVID situation.

Being an international student, I know exactly how it feels to move into halls from a completely different country. I also know what I’ve missed as a fresher, so always know that I am here to help you settle down in any way I can, and make sure you get the best 1st year hall experience!

I am fond of learning new languages and things about different cultures. I absolutely love listening to music- its mostly mainstream pop (English) and some Bollywood numbers (Hindi). If you pass by my room, you occasionally may hear some music and me singing and dancing along with it. I am also into oratory and theatre and I enjoy binge-watching crime-thriller and comedy sitcoms. You can also find me in the kitchen, as I love cooking as much as eating what I cook, while chatting or watching a good movie.

So here begins your hall journey! I will be there for you, whether you want to talk about (or vent about) something, you need help with anything or you just want to hang out and laugh about nothing in particular. I can’t wait to bump into y’all in the kitchen and hallways!!

Chaeyeon Hwang

Hey everyone, I’m Chaeyeon (you can call me Chae) and I’ll be your 2nd floor hall senior (I live in 221) this year, and also for 2, B and 4th jointly with Anaya. It’s my pleasure to welcome you all to Imperial and Linstead this year! I’m a second-year Medical Biosciences student and I’m Korean but was born and raised in Indonesia, Jakarta. I lived in Kemp Porter in my first year so I feel as lucky as you do living right in front of campus this year! I remember the moment my mom left London to go back home and I was left all alone in this foreign country, not knowing a single person, afraid of embarking on this new journey by myself. I was where you are right now, exactly one year ago and I’ve come a LONG way from that day. As a fellow international student and your hall senior, I’m here to tell you, you aren’t alone and we’re all here to help you adapt and make the most of your first year here. Outside my studies, you’ll find me procrastinating on work in the kitchen, I’m a passionate and if I say so myself, a not-so-bad, cook. I love making and sharing food as much as I love the people I share it with. I also enjoy dancing as a sport, travelling, reading and exploring London with regular food adventures. You’ll find me smiling and talking (loudly) most of the time so it shouldn’t be too hard to approach me, and please do with all your good AND bad news, your problems and successes, I’m here to listen and celebrate them all with you. I can’t wait to meet each and every one of you!

Sahana Iyer

Hi Everyone! I'm Sahana, and i'm really excited to be one of your hall seniors this year, based on Floor 1 (I live in 115), also covering 1, LG, M and 5 jointly with Amtul. I'm a 3rd Year Molecular Bioengineering student, and i'm originally from Singapore and have been living in London for the past 6 years. I love all things music and theatre, and I have been learning indian classical singing for most of my life (so it is my primary hobby and favourite past time). In my free time, I love watching cricket, tennis and F1, as well as movies and tv shows (especially some classic bollywood or a light-hearted sitcom), and I love to cook so you will definitely catch me in the kitchen immersed in intensive meal prep! I also absolutely enjoy exploring this beautiful city and all the fun activities there is to do here, and I can't wait to help organise some really fun events with the hall senior team for you all this year. I am always eager and happy to have a chat so please do not hesitate to say hi when you catch me around halls! I look forward to getting to know all of you over the year.

Amtul Azeem

Hi guys! I’m Amtul and I will be the Hall Senior for floor 5 (I live in 507) this year, but I will be joint seniors with Sahana for floors 5, LG, M and 1. I am a third year Mech Eng student, so I’ve been here a while and I can’t wait to meet you all this year! I was born in India but raised mostly in Leeds, UK. I am a home student so I am very familiar with how everything runs around here – so if you have any questions (from the tube system to grocery shopping) feel free to come and ask me! I was in Woodward in North Acton for my first year, so being in Linstead is as new to you as it is to me but I’m confident that we will figure it out together. My hobbies include reading and crocheting. My favourite book series is the Six of Crows duology, if anyone is familiar with it I would love to chat to you about it. I also love puzzles and games, my favourite board game is Cluedo, but I know LOADS of card games so if you’re ever feeling lonely or feel like you have nothing to do feel free to knock on my door for a game. I’m always happy for a chat, no matter what floor you are on, if you need any help or have any concerns don’t hesitate to come and grab me! I look forward to seeing you and hope that we have an amazing time together in Linstead this year!

On eHalls, you can report any defects to your room or communal spaces, fill out your room inventory, raise an issue with the team and much more. Be sure to make yourself familiar with the interface, and ask someone from the team if something is not clear!

    Report a problem

    Security & Emergency

    What do I have to do in case of fire alarm?

    When the fire alarm sounds you must vacate the building and assemble in Princes Gardens, on the grass, away from the front door of Linstead to allow fire marshals access the building. Students who do not vacate the hall will be fined.

    How secure is the hall?

    Only residents have a swipe card activated for entering the building. If you see someone whom you do not recognise entering the hall, please ask politely if he/she is a resident. However, if for any reason you are uncomfortable about doing this or suspect something amiss, please ring the duty warden. You are fully responsible for any guests you bring into the hall and they should not wander around unaccompanied. Please ask them to ring you at the door.

    Does the hall provide insurance cover for personal belongings?

    Imperial College arranges basic insurance cover for students living in its halls of residence. We should recommend that any students with particularly valuable items (computer equipment, bikes, etc) should make their own insurance arrangements.


    What can I do in case of emergency?

    See our emergency numbers in the Contact Section below.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

    So, you are at Linstead and you have a few questions. Not sure of what to do. Here are a few of the most commonly asked questions and their answers:

    Swipe Cards

    Can I lend my swipe card to someone else?

    It is very important that you do not lend your card to anyone else. Keep in mind that the card serves as both your college and student identity card as well as granting you access to college facilities such as the Library and the Sports Centre, your department and your room. Keep it with you at all times.

    What can I do if I lose my swipe card?

    If you lose your card, replacements can be obtained during the day from the security office in the Sherfield building; replacements will cost £10 each. If you loose your card and are unable to replace it, the security office in Weeks Hall, and the duty wardens will be able to help you get into your room.

    Note: all new ID cards have to be programmed by Gabor office in order for you to have access to your room. So please take your new ID card to Gabor office for reprogramming once issued with a new one!

    What can I do if the swipe card doesn’t work?

    If at any time you have problems with your swipe card please contact duty warden at duty hours or contact Gabor office out of duty hours.

    Kitchens and Bedrooms

    What do the kitchens come equipped with?

    Every kitchen is equipped with cookers, ovens, refrigerators and freezers. You will have your own lockable cupboard, the keys to which will be provided.

    Are the rooms and kitchens cleaned?

    Your rooms will be cleaned by the cleaning staff. Kitchens will be cleaned regularly.

    Will cleaners clean our dishes?

    The cleaners will not do your washing-up. Any dirty crockery or cutlery will be placed in the green bins located within each kitchen. The Hall Manager will dispose of anything still in the green bins after a week.

    What do the rooms come equipped with?

    A typical en-suite room will include the followings: a bed, study desk, chair, wardrobe, shelving, desk lamp and curtains. There is a bathroom in every room, but the kitchen is shared with other students.

    Can I put a poster up my wall?

    Do not attach any tape or Blue-Tac to your walls under any circumstance, marked walls will incur a charge.

    Is there an area where smoking is allowed?

    The college no-smoking policy is in effect and smoking is strictly forbidden in and in the vicinity of the hall.

    How can I report broken and damaged items?

    Any defects must be reported on eHalls. Here any small problems like a leaking sink/shower, broken desk or you require a new light bulb etc. should be reported. Imperial College Residences aim to respond to all non-emergency defects within 5 working days using a team of maintenance contractors who visit each hall on a weekly basis to deal with any non-urgent defects. Except in emergencies we will not enter your room without permission or prior arrangement. This permission will be given when you report the defect. When a contractor enters your room they will leave a ‘maintenance calling card’ which will inform you of the time of arrival/departure, description of the defect, whether the defect has been resolved or a return visit is required, and the name of the operative.

    Telephone, Internet, Post

    How can I connect to the internet?

    The network sockets in your room are active and can be used with your computer. You need to register your computer before you will have access to the network. You can register for the Student Halls Network service as follows:

    1. Connect your computer to the network socket in your room.
    2. Switch on the computer, and open a web browser.
    3. Browse to any page (e.g. http://www.imperial.ac.uk). You will be automatically redirected to the registration pages.

    You will need the following information to register:

    • Your College CID
    • A personal / College email address
    • A telephone contact number
    • Your Hall / Room no. Once registered, your Internet connection will be activated. If you require assistance or more information, dial 45500 from the telephone in your room.

    How fast is the internet?

    The internet connection in your room is part of the College network and so is very quick. It is more than sufficient for any work requirements you may have. Please do not use Bittorrent and similar programs. Even if you are downloading files legally, the enormous number of connections opened by Bittorrent software will overload the hall’s network server and cause connection errors to other internet users in the hall.

    Where can I collect my post?

    Your post will be found in the mailboxes in the foyer of the residence. Any packages or letters requiring a signature will be delivered to the security lodge in Weeks hall. Security officers will leave a note for you alerting of the presence of that letter or package.


    Where can I wash my clothes?

    The laundry is situated in the basement level and contains washing machines and tumble dryers. The machines are operated by Circuit Laundry and you will need to download their app to use them.

    Why do washing machines get broken?

    Please do not overload the machines. They are not designed to wash blankets, sleeping bags or training shoes. If you overload them, they break down and it can take several weeks before they are fixed.


    What entertainment facilities are available in the hall?

    There is a common room in the hall with a PS4 (with Netflix!) and table football. In addition, we have a large social space which we share with Southside and Eastside.

    Is the hall organising any sport or social events?

    We have a football team who takes part in the inter-hall tournament. Please contact a senior if you would like to join it. We will also consider having other sports teams, like a basketball team, depending on the interest shown by the students. If you are interested in running, one of us will organise some runs in Hyde Park to stretch the legs. The hall organises events such as film nights, quizes, dinners, etc. The hall also runs activities outside hall such as trips to the cinema, paintballing, concerts and art galleries. There will be lots of events organised, especially during Freshers’ fortnight. The hall promotes these excursions by subsidising entry fees. Additionally, there are several formal events each year. Formal dress is encouraged for these events; these are the most significant events of the year, with the majority of the hall attending. They have food, prizegiving, music and dancing. If you have any suggestions for social events, please talk to the wardening team or join the hall committee.

    Does the Hall have a Facebook Group?

    Yes, it can be found here

    Where are the nearest cash points?

    The nearest cash point is located just outside Essentials shop, on the ground floor of Wilkinson Hall. It is accessible 24/7 with your college swipe card, and is free of charge.

    Where is the nearest Sports centre?

    One minute walk away from the hall you will find the new Ethos Sports centre with a gym and swimming pool which are free to use for Imperial College students. There is also a sports hall at the centre where you can play football, table tennis, basketball and badminton for a small fee.

    Where is the nearest Medical centre?

    You should register with the Imperial College Health Centre when you arrive, located beneath Southside, just two minutes from Linstead.

    Local information


    Where is the bicycle shed?

    You can store your bike at our Southside bike shed (swipe access via side gate next to Selkirk). You will need to get your swipe card activated at the hall office before you can access the shed. Alternatively, you can also use the college bike shed under the Faculty Building. Bringing your bicycle into the hall or your room is strictly forbidden.

    Are we allowed to park our cars at the hall?

    There is no parking space provided near the hall. We advise students not to bring a car, as parking permits in College are only issued to students in cases of disability. Parking on London streets is strictly controlled and very expensive.

    What is the easiest way to travel around London?

    The main two means of public transport in London are buses and the tube. Everyone travelling in London should get an Oyster card, which you can use both on the buses and on the tube. Travelling with Oyster is cheaper and you can get an Oyster card at every tube station. As a student you can also apply for a student Oyster card (you can get the form at the Registry in Sherfield building), which gives you discounts on weekly and monthly passes. To plan your journey you can use Transport for London’s Journey Planner which gives you detailed description of possible routes. For more information on travel in London visit http://www.tfl.gov.uk.

    Where is the nearest tube station?

    The nearest tube station is the South Kensington tube station, which is approximately 5 minutes walk from the halls.

    What are the local bus routes?

    From the bus stations around Imperial College you can catch buses 9, 10, 49, 70, 52 and 360. If you walk to the South Kensington station you can also catch buses 14, 74, 345, 414, 430 and C1. Night routes serving the area are N9, N10, N52, N74, N97, 14 and 345. For more information and maps visit https://tfl.gov.uk/maps/bus.
