I would like to meet up with old friends at the Weekend. Are you able to help me do this?

If you are no longer in touch with your friends or classmates, we are happy to pass on a message by email. Drop us a line at alumni.weekend@imperial.ac.uk, and we will be able to help.

Why not encourage any friends or classmates you are in contact with to join you at the Weekend? We can help you to organise your own reunion, or put you in touch with your classmates if a reunion is already in progress.

We encourage you to try and communicate with friends and classmates in advance of Alumni Weekend to arrange a day, time and location to meet. You may find the Alumni Lounge is a convenient and comfortable location to meet up.

Will there be refreshments/lunch available at Alumni Weekend?

We will provide unlimited complimentary tea, coffee, soft drinks and biscuits in the Alumni Lounge all weekend. A variety of other catering options are available throughout campus including selected College outlets and the Festival street food stalls. You are more than welcome to bring food and drink into the Alumni Lounge.

How do I get to the South Kensington Campus?

The South Kensington Campus is easily accessible by underground, bus and train. Further information, and a map of the campus, can be found on the College travel pages

Is accommodation available on campus before or after the Weekend?

As Alumni Weekend is being held during term time, there is very limited on-site accommodation. However, we enjoy excellent partnerships with local hotels who have been carefully selected with specially negotiated rates to ensure you the best value. Please book directly with the hotel reservations team using the details on their website.

Is parking available at the College?

There are no parking spaces available on campus during the Imperial Festival and Alumni Weekend. There are a number of NCP car parks within the vicinity of the College. We suggest using other modes of transport to reach the South Kensington Campus as it is easily accessible by underground, bus and train. Further information, and a map of the campus, can be found on the College travel pages

You are welcome to bring a camera to take your own photographs. Please note that photography and video recording will take place in the Alumni Lounge and throughout the Imperial Festival and photos will be available to view on social media and on Imperial's website after the event. Imperial College London reserves the right to use any photography from the event in online and offline publications, but guarantees that photographs will not be made available for the use of any third parties external to the College.

If you do not wish to be photographed, please alert the team on the registration desk when you arrive in the Alumni Lounge and you will be provided with a 'no photography' badge.
