Twin room sizes range from 15.5m2 to 17.5m2
Double room sizes average 15m2

'I feel that Rosebery Hall has qualities that make it an ideal home for any LSE student. The friendly atmosphere makes it feel very warm and welcoming, and its social life can be described in two words: first class. Based on its location and most definitely the people who live there, there is never a dull moment.'
