You will not be able to stay in High Holborn during the summer vacation, but if you have a valid academic reason for remaining in London throughout the summer, you may be offered accommodation in another residence.

'High Holborn is unique due to its location. Staying close to the LSE campus during first year has been invaluable. Living with flatmates has been a great social experience, and I have lost count of how many free food and drinks nights we have had in the downstairs common room."
'High Holborn has a warm and welcoming feel the moment you step through the doors and the location is also fantastic, 5-10 minutes from LSE and right in the heart of the West End. Most of all it has great events that all the residents can get involved in.'
