Temporary accommodation for LSE students

No place in halls? Book discounted short-term accommodation this summer 

Stay with us while you look for a place to live in London. Our affordable and central residences are a great place to stay while you search for a London property to rent. You'll be close to transport links and can also network with other students in the hall, who might want to start a flat-share.

Who is this for?
To get the special rates below, you need to be a future or current LSE student, but don't have a place in one of our halls.

Who is this NOT for?
Don't book this for early arrival. If you are an LSE student and have a place in halls, please refer to the instructions in your Hallpad account if you'd like to arrive early. Visit: Hallpad

|If you are a student at any other university, you can still book accommodation, but will pay our standard best available rate.

Locations and rates

  • A credit or debit card is required to pay for the booking. We are not able to accept any other payment method.
  • Upon check-in all students using the LSE transit student rate MUST provide proof of their LSE student ID in order to receive the special rate. If you cannot provide a course offer letter or LSE ID card then we will be forced to charge the best available commercial rate for that night.

  • Extensions possible subject to availability. Please book this at reception as soon as you know that you want to extend your stay.
  • Check in from 3pm on the scheduled date of arrival. If  you'll be later than 8pm, let us know, so that we can hold your booking.

  • You may cancel a booking in writing and we will refund you any monies paid less a cancellation fee if you notify us a minimum of 72 hours in advance of check-in time. The cancellation fee equals your first night's stay. You will be issued with a cancellation number to confirm your cancellation.
