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 and are here to make you feel welcome.

20 Hall Seniors live throughout the hall and will be around to help you settle in to Halls and Imperial life. Meet the 2020/21 team below!

Haddon

Hey folks! Congratulations on getting into Imperial and welcome to Wilson House! I’m Haddon and I’m studying Medicine. This will be my third year as a Wilsonian! Get ready for an awesome year, packed with fun and excitement! You’ll meet so many incredible people here and make long-lasting friendships and memories!
(I know it sounds clichéd but it’s true!!)

In my free time, I dabble in a bit of hockey and music. You might even hear me singing, so you’d better pack a pair of earplugs – just kidding! University life is a big change, but we’re here for you if you ever need to talk!

Looking forward to seeing y’all soon!

Oskar

Hi Everyone, my name’s Oskar and I’m a 5th year medical student (very old I know).

Having been a first year in Wilson many years ago, I’m looking forward to being back in Paddington after too many remote lectures and I can confirm it is the BEST hall to be placed in.  

My interests include travelling (and trying/failing to learn foreign languages), windsurfing/watersports, gym, swimming, piano and gaming. Apparently I’m not the worst cook either.

I look forward to meeting you all, feel free to drop me a message on socials or knock on my door whenever, be it about first year advice and beyond, the best clubs in London,windsurfing or the latest Warzone (Hackzone) meta.

Aya

Hi and welcome to Imperial! I’m Aya and I’m a third year Maths student. Aside from some mental arithmetic, I’m a big musical theatre fan, always up for any outdoor activities, watching movies, cooking, and of course trips to Tesco. I’ve been told I can be loud, so if you can hear someone talk/sing/laugh from miles away, I apologise in advance.

Please feel free to knock on my door if you need anything or just want to say hi:) I look forward to meeting you all!

Matteo

Hi everyone, welcome to Imperial and congratulations on making it here (it’s no small feat)! My name is Matteo and I am a third year Computing student. If you really like computers, great food, cooking (not so great food), philosophising over existential problems, or for any other reason, feel free to knock  on my door or message me on Facebook. 
From personal experience, I can tell you that being a fresher at  Wilson will give you the chance to meet and become friends with some of the nicest and most interesting people out there – make the most out of it!

James

Hello everyone!

Welcome to Imperial and congratulations on making it here amid these turbulent times! My name is James, and I am a third year Chemical with Nuclear Engineering student originally from the Portsmouth area. I love Imperial’s amazing motor societies, cycling, all things scouting, playing the flute and exploring London.

Settling and transitioning into university life may seem intimidating at first but we’re here to assist you with that transition. This is my second time living at Wilson House as a returning hall senior and although I lived in Woodward during my first year, everyone I know who lived here as a fresher thoroughly enjoyed it. So, if you ever want a quick chat, require any help or anything else then feel free to knock on my door.

My advice is to make the most of the opportunities provided by freshers’ fortnight even if it may be a bit different this year because you will still meet loads of new people and make many new friends.

Looking forward to meeting all of you this October!

Zeling

I’m Zeling Xiong. You can also call me Elle. You can see from my name that I am a Chinese. I am a third year undergraduate studying physics 🙂 If you enjoy music, food or anything interesting, you can always talk to me:) 

Zeteny

Hi, everyone! Congratulations for getting into Imperial! I’m looking forward to spend this year at Wilson with you- hopefully coronavirus won’t bother us anymore! 

I’m Zétény (Zaitaine), a 2nd year Physics student from Hungary. There are a lot of things that interest me – so I’m usually available for any kind of conversation, not just about science or physics, but anything from poetry, philosophy, history, books or politics. 

In my spare time I usually listen to interviews, read the news, science fiction or science history books, but I love cooking as well. My hobby is amateur astronomy, I have my own telescope at home and every month I write a few popular science articles for a Hungarian astronomy website. 

Take care of you, see you soon!

Wei Qin

Hello everyone! Welcome to Wilson 🙂

I am Wei Qin and I’m a second year Medical Biosciences student. I am from Malaysia and like all other Malaysians, I have a great passion for food. I like cooking (although not so good at it) and trying out new recipes. I also do a little bit of climbing and dancing, but more often I will just be binge watching tv shows or sleeping. Looking forward to meet you all soon! 

Mengjie

Hi everyone! I’m Mengjie, a Chinese second year biomedical science student. When I am not studying, I enjoy walking in the Hyde park or drawing. I also love exploring new things, such as find a new habit or test out new food recipes. Hope you will have an amazing time at university and in Wilson! If you have any questions or worries, feel free to come to me or text me. I’m very excited to get to meet you all!

Drishti

Hello everyone! First of all, congratulations on making it to Imperial! Secondly, welcome to Wilson, hope you have a great time here! 😊

I am Drishti, a second year Medical Biosciences student. I am originally Indian but I was born and raised in the Canary Islands, Spain.

Some fun facts about me: I love telling fun facts randomly, I love learning new languages (currently taking a French Horizons course) and I consider myself to be a granny because I am absolutely obsessed with sewing and I would really love to learn how to knit and stitch, and I also like cycling, reading books, painting, dancing, etc. In my spare time, you will probably see me involved in clubs and societies – as a piece of advice, join as many clubs and societies during your first year to try out some new stuff – or spending time in the kitchen (it is indeed my favourite place).

Other than that, my plan is to join some societies as I didn’t have a normal year during my first year (such as Pole, Dance, maybe some art stuff?) and to redo my Freshers and (hopefully) have a more normal year.

Oh and also, I absolutely adore long walks (not the 45-min kinda walk but more like a 5-hour one) and one of my many goals for the academic year is to visit all 9 Imperial campuses in one day, so hmu if you’re interested in doing either of them!

If you ever need anything, have any questions about Wilson, Imperial, my course, or just want to have a chat about random stuff, feel free to message me or knock on my door! Looking forward to seeing you all!

Suchi

Hello everyone, congrats for making it into Imperial! I’m Suchi and I’m a 4th year Computing student. Outside of Computing, I am an avid Dungeons and Dragons enthusiast and enjoy cooking up fiery dishes in the kitchen. I am also down for any thrill-seeking activities and love to explore social life in London.

Please feel free to say hello and have a chat about anything you fancy! I look forward to meeting you all. 😊

Benton

Hi, welcome to Wilson (and Imperial I guess), I’m Ben, a third year Mech Eng student. I’m a car enthusiast and am usually found underneath some old rust bucket. I also saved my housemates from a hornet in first year with a hoover duct-taped to a pool cue. If you’ve got any questions about living in Wilson, studying at Imperial, or anything else, I’ve been here 2 years already so feel free to talk to me or message on Discord (bean_ #2750).

I am Matei and I am a 4th year Mechanical Engineering student, a Formula 1 lover and an aspirant cook. When I am not zoning out writing poetry or playing squash, I can most certainly be found in Hyde Park strolling or riding a Boris bike. As a fresher in Wilson, I can reassure you that you are very lucky in getting a place in the best Hall. If you have any questions, issues or just want to have a quick chat, do get in touch. I am excited to meet you all!
