The School now provides secure laptop lockers for use by students and staff. These lockers are located in room G.15 on the ground floor of Old Building. For directions to this room please speak to the staff on duty at the Old Building reception desk.
There is no charge for the use of this facility and all you require to enter the room and operate the locker is a valid LSE campus (ID) card.

Looking after your bike
Lock both wheels and the frame to a bike stand or immovable object
Lock 'tight' so your bike is hard to move manoeuvre when parked
Secure your lock so it does not touch the ground
It is always best to use two locks. Go for example, a strong D-lock and sturdy chain lock. This means that a thief will need different tools to break each lock, making theft less likely.
