About

LSE & London

We work closely with local councils, the GLA and the Mayor of London on a wide range of issues that matter to London and LSE.

Our relationship with our home city is intrinsic to who we are and what we do. Like London, LSE is diverse, open to the world, vibrant and fully engaged in the conversations that truly matter.

The LSE experience is unashamedly urban and metropolitan; we are not a place of cloisters and green fields but we are at the very heart of things, both intellectually and physically.

LSE has diverse research interests that are directly relevant to London; indeed we have a research centre dedicated to London. Our academic output from right across the School takes in London-focused issues from housing and city planning, to social inequality and trade and financial regulation. And we are engaged with London, both at a local government and a community level.

We are proud to be working with schools across the capital to support access to Higher Education from students in ‘low-participation’ neighbourhoods. And we work closely with local councils, the GLA and the Mayor of London on a wide range of issues that matter to London, and of course to LSE students and staff. 

We are also immensely proud of our campus and are grateful for the support and recognition from partners right across the capital for the plans we have underway to develop it for the future. 

LSE and London share far more than a name.
