Student wellbeing at LSE

  • Student Wellbeing at LSE  is dedicated to help you improve your wellbeing while studying at LSE.
  • We offer a wide range of support services that hope to cultivate student welfare and make sure that your presence in the school is a rewarding and meaningful experience.
  • We want to help you reach your full potential and ensure that you are able to meet the challenges that will come before you, while enjoying your time at LSE.
  • Free and confidential, our services are based on self-referral.
  • Periodically we hold Wellbeing Stalls in the Plaza outside the Library. This coincides with events such as Time to Change’s annual 'Time to Talk Day' and World Mental Health Day, where we aim to give students the chance to talk about mental health. These are staffed by members of the Student Counselling Service, Disability and Wellbeing Service, Residential Services and Peer Supporters, with a focus on helping to maintain mental health/wellbeing.

Please see below the list of Student Wellbeing Services at LSE:

Student Wellbeing Services

LSE Disability and Wellbeing Service is the first point of contact for disabled students, both before arrival at LSE and throughout their time here. They have experts in long term medical/ health conditions, physical disabilities and sensory impairments, mental health and specific learning difficulties (such as Dyslexia). They are available for advice and guidance, and can put in place Inclusion Plans (IPs) and help with Individual Examination Adjustments.

LSE Student Counselling Service is a free and confidential service for all students, offering one to one appointments, drop in sessions at 15:00 Mondays to Fridays, and group based support on issues such as stress management and self esteem.

LSE Peer Support enables students to talk confidentially to a fellow student about anything that is troubling them. Located in halls of residence and on campus, the Peer Supporters are a group of specially selected and trained students who help their peers to find their own solutions.
