Student hall committee

Elected in week 2, we are here to serve the residents of Sidney Webb. We organise social events and also attempt to use our budget to improve the facilities in the hall. 

We care deeply for your welfare whilst you stay in the hall, and we are also responsible for using your common room fee in order to provide events and entertainments throughout the year. Make sure you  keep an eye out for our frequent posters and emails.

How to become a committee member

  • In the first few weeks of Michaelmas term there will be an opportunity for all of you to stand for election to the committee. Among the vacant posts are secretary, social events director, volunteers coordinator, and women's officer.
  • This is a fantastic opportunity for everyone to get involved in student life and it will make a good addition to your CV / resume. You will also increase your chances of being offered a room in halls the following year.
  • Committee members need to be energetic, dynamic and committed. If this describes you and you would like to stand for a position please contact the committee president.
  • Even if you are not part of the student committee, if you have any ideas for events or parties throughout the year,  feel free to get in touch with the president or any of the elected officers. "Strangers are just friends that haven't met yet..."

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