The Welcome Guide
The first section of the Welcome Guide will be dedicated to things that you can do before Welcome Week.
The guide will be available here in Augsut 2017.
Early Arrivals Welcome Hub & Events
On specific days in August and September the John Watkins Plaza (outside the library) will be home to our Welcome Hub for Early Arrivals. There will be a help-point staffed by experienced members of the Student Services Centre who can give you advice and directions around LSE.
We will also be running a dedicated schedule of events for students that have arrived at LSE early. This will include
Presentations for international students
Talks about wellbeing
Information for students living off campus
Practically focussed top-tips sessions
A showcase of services available to LSE Students
More information about the Early Arrivals Hub and events will be available in the summer.
Useful things to know
Unless you are registering early as part of a compulsory pre-sessional course, you will need to wait for your designated registration date.
Student bank accounts and travel discounts
You may be able to set up a bank account prior to registration, however some tasks, such as securing student discounts on travel cards cannot be done until after you have registered as a student.
Council Tax exemption
Please be aware that if you choose to arrive early you may be liable to pay Council Tax for that period until your official registration date
