Social activities at the hall - student social committee

The student hall committee is a body of residents elected by residents in order to represent them with the hall, the School and the Students' Union.

The committee is responsible for using your common room fee to provide events throughout the year, as well as to help improve hall facilities to better the student experience. Each committee member has their own area of responsibility, but they all work as a team to bring together a wealth of activities and experiences for all residents to benefit from. 

Make sure you keep an eye out for all events in the Butler’s Bulletin and on the Facebook page.

To contact your committee please email residences.butlerswharf.committee@lse.ac.uk.  Or, you can contact a specific committee member using their personal email address below.
