Private housing advice

Finding a place to live in privately rented accommodation

Most LSE students live in privately rented housing and commute to the School every day. In order to find somewhere to live, you should come to London before the beginning of the academic session. We would advise you to allow a minimum of two weeks to search for accommodation (students with children should allow longer).  

We can put you in touch with private landlords. Please contact us via the contact us box on the left. We've also put a guide together to get you started: Finding private housing|

Moving into halls after renting privately

Are you living in privately rented accommodation, and think that hall accommodation would be more suitable for you? Contact us for via the contact box on the left, or check our list of : Current vacant rooms in LSE halls of residence|.

Late summer temporary accommodation

From mid August until the end of September, a number of places in halls is available on a temporary basis. Staying in halls while searching for a place to rent is how a lot of students find their housing each year. It's also an  opportunity to meet other students with whom to start a flat share.
