The Wardens

The Wardening team are here for your safety, wellbeing, and discipline – but also to make sure that the Hall runs smoothly and you have an enjoyable first year at university.

The wardens are here for you and because of you, so don’t hesitate to approach anyone of us for help or when you see us in the hall.

What exactly are the Wardens here for? The Wardens act as your first port of call for help and support for any matters relating to life in halls and to university life in general. We are also in charge of making sure the hall environment is conducive to study and living, and so will make sure that Pembridge is sufficiently clean and quiet, particularly during night time. Together with the Hall Seniors, we organise social activities and events to help you to settle in, get to know one another and have fun in halls.

The wardens are on call every evening from 18:00 – 08:00 and throughout the weekend and holidays. Make sure that the duty number and email are in your address book.

Weekday Warden’s Surgery. You can also find us in the warden’s office on the ground floor next to the main entrance every weekday from 19:00 – 19:30 where you can collect your post, rent out mattresses and other items, and talk to us about any issues.

There is also a lot of other support available at Imperial College for many of the problems you may encounter – please have a look at the Support page. Remember that there are a lot of options and a lot of people to help you. Nothing is too big, or too small. Please do not suffer in silence: tell someone if there is an issue. We want you to succeed and are here to help you.


MarkoMarko — The Warden

Marko is the Warden here at Pembridge, as well as Parsons House and Alban. He hails from Croatia and works with computers. You may also see his wife, Ana, and daughters Dora and Lira around the halls – all are very friendly and always ready for a chat. With Dora, though, you won’t get an opportunity to say many words, because she doesn’t stop talking (mostly in Croatian). Marko likes Ana’s food, a glass of wine, sports and talking to people. He also likes tidy and smiley students – make sure you’re one.

Emily — Senior Subwarden

Emily graduated her Chemistry MSci at Imperial in 2018 and is now studying a PhD split between the Chemistry department and the department of Infectious Diseases. She ran the London Marathon in 2019 and is crazy enough to want to run more if anyone fancies a jog in Hyde park? She is lover of flavoured teas so drop by for a fresh brew and a chat. Also feel free to challenge her to a game of pool – She needs the practice.


Sophie — Subwarden

Sophie is a second year PhD student in the department of infectious disease, working on antibodies against bacterial infection. She enjoys cooking new food, testing out recipes and can often be found bingeing various TV series or movies. If you fancy a cup of coffee and a chat, feel free to knock on her door.

Annie is currently studying International Health Management at the Business School after completing her undergraduate degree at King’s College London. She loves food, more food, film photography and travelling. Catch her whilst she’s pottering around or knock on her door for a chat.
