As well as being one of the world’s leading social science institutes, LSE also boasts a vibrant campus, with a variety of activities and facilities for students to enjoy. Based in the heart of London, LSE has been home to a number of Nobel Prize winners, heads of state, senior politicians, and figures from the media and the arts.
LSE's Students' Union provides students with volunteering opportunities, a host of social activities, as well as support and advice services. A new student’s centre, to be completed by the end of 2013, will also offer a number of new services including a media centre, gym and dance studio, a multifaith prayer centre, and a new pub.
Along with the IPA’s Policy in Practice seminars, LSE also holds over 100 public lectures per term through its Public Lecture Programme. The events are free and open to all, ensuring that LSE students are always exposed to leading research and opinion.
