Contacting us

The office is open 9.30am - 5.30pm.

Queries and requests should be sent to timetables@lse.ac.uk. This mailbox is checked regularly.

If you have a query that requires immediate attention you can call the office on ext 6333.

If you have a query relating to the audio visual equipment in teaching rooms please note you should call ext 5300/5400. This will put you through to a member of the Teaching and Learning Spaces team who should be able to help you.

The Timetables Office deals only with bookings for timetabled teaching. By this we mean they must have a course code. All other bookings are dealt with by the LSE room booking, please email Lse.Roombookings@lse.ac.uk.

Checking your timetable

Teacher personal timetable

You can check your personal timetable using the link above. This should show all of your teaching. If anything is missing or incorrect it is essential that you contact us straight away. From the start of the Michaelmas Term changes are only made to the current timetable if you have requested them or if we have contacted you to discuss a change. It is advisable to check your timetable at the start of each term as there are often room changes across terms.

Requesting and notifying changes to the current year's timetable

If you need to make a change to an existing timetabled booking or request additional bookings, you must do it via the Timetables Office. This ensures that the timetable on the web is up-to-date and that rooms are released if they are not being used.

To enable us to change or create a booking, we need the following information:

  • Course code
  • Type of teaching: lecture, class or seminar. If it is a class or seminar we will also need to know the group number
  • Teacher
  • Specific dates and times
  • The nature of the change - eg a cancellation or an additional meeting
  • Size of room required
  • Audio visual requirements in the room


All cancellations must be notified to the Timetables Office even if it is a last minute cancellation. This is important for a number of reasons:

  • It ensures that we have the correct information on the system so that we can answer any queries we receive
  • The room can be released for others to book
  • For last minute cancellation we will post a notice on the door of the room
  • For undergraduate classes and graduate seminars we will delete the register on LSE for You
  • We email the students, notifying them of the cancellation
  • We can arrange for any rescheduling that is required


All undergraduate classes and graduate seminars have a register on LSE for You, which must be completed. If you are unable to access your class registers please contact the Timetables Office.

Class registers are produced at 7am on the day of class so they can not be viewed in advance.

Room bookings

The teaching code of good practice (as noted in the School calendar) states that lectures and classes start at five minutes past the hour and end at five minutes to the hour. Staff and students should make every effort to start and finish on time.
