On this program, you will live in LSE university housing. You’ll settle in and learn to live as a true Londoner. Regardless of which of LSE’s eight residence halls you are assigned, you should expect a 15-45 minute commute to classes (great for London!). All residences are self-catered, so please remember to see budget estimates for additional expenses. You should also visit the general accommodation information for England.
When choosing your accommodation, it may be useful to refer to the map of LSE’s campus and residences—still, it’s best to be flexible and open-minded regarding where you will live!
Supplemental housing fees may apply if you are placed in a single room in any residence or if you are placed in a residence with a meal plan.
