Fifth Floor Lift

Out of Service, 10th July to 3rd September 2017

Access can be gained via the main entrance to the Library

Due to refurbishment works, lift access to the Finance Division on the 5th floor of the Lionel Robbins building will be not be available.

The refurbishment will take place with effect from Monday 10th July until Sunday 3rdSeptember 2017. 

During this period, you can gain access via the main entrance of the Library. You will need to enter through the turnstiles with your LSE staff card and take the lift, which can be found a few metres forward to the right-hand side of the turnstiles, to the fourth floor.

Upon exiting at the fourth floor, you will need to follow the signs to the exit door, which can be found by following the floor round to the left. You will then see the door in the far-right corner, next to the sign for the PhD Academy. Upon walking through this door, there will then be signs to guide you to the stairwell which will take you to the fifth floor.

The route will bring you to the Finance Division and HR Division at the usual reception area.


If you are unable to access the Finance Division via the stairs, a member of Finance Divison staff will be able to meet with you in the Library Services’ LSE Life.

LSE Life is located on the ground floor of the Library. A member of Library Services staff will be able to direct you to the location where you should then introduce yourself to colleagues at the LSE Life reception desk.

LSE Life are open between 10am and 6pm (Monday to Friday).


An access card can be collected from the main desk at the Library. Visitors will need to confirm to their Finance Division contact in advance so that the card can be issued. Visitors will then be able to gain access to enter through the fourth floor and make their way to the fifth floor. Cards are to be returned to the Library Service desk upon leaving. 

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact Sara Whyte directly.
