Who's who at Carr-Saunders Hall

A big welcome from everyone at Carr-Saunders. We all have one aim: to help you make the most of your time in London, at LSE and in the hall. We aim to ensure that your stay is as comfortable, pleasant and, most importantly, secure and safe as possible.

Our service manager oversees the administration, whereas the warden looks after pastoral care issues. The student committee organises the social events at the hall. All teams work closely together and will always try to help wherever they can.

Pastoral support

The warden deals with matters of pastoral support and discipline within the hall, together with two subwardens who assist in this task.
