Connect from your Study Bedroom

First activate your IT account before you follow these steps. You can activate your IT account at any time from any LSE student computer room, or the computer room in your residence. You must know your LSE student number before you can obtain your account - this number is printed on your ID card (Library card) and on all of your LSE correspondence.


 You will receive a network cable on arrival at your residence reception.

When you have your LSE username and password, you will be able to activate your internet connection from your study bedroom and access other LSE resources. Until you do so, you will have access to the LSE website only.

See Halls Internet Activation for details on how to activate the internet in your Halls of Residence.

You will then have access to:

  • The internet
  • Your LSE email account
  • Personal file space (H: space)
  • LSE printers
  • Electronic Library resources
  • Anti-virus and other free security tools

More than one computer?

If you would like to connect an additional computer to the internet, see Section 2 of Halls Internet Activation.


 The Laptop Surgery offers free hands-on assistance with problems connecting to the internet and LSE resources. Visit the Laptop Surgery webpages for more information, including opening hours.
