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've put a guide together to get you started: Finding private housing
LSE Studentpad is our online private housing database. Registration is free, and you can search for suitable properties and contact landlords directly: LSE Studentpad
Events and advice sessions
On Monday 5 September 2016, we will be hosting a private housing advice stand outside the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre on campus. Come along between 12pm to 2pm for advice on where and when to look for private housing. Staff from LSE Residential Services and the University of London Housing Services will be available to answer your questions.

Staying in halls while flat hunting - late summer temporary accommodation
From mid August until the end of September, a number of places in halls is offered on a short-term 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 you can start a flat share.
