Off Campus Support Scheme

Undergraduate students who are not living in halls of residence are given the opportunity to be allocated a trained LSE Student Mentor through LSE's Off Campus Support Scheme|.

Mentors are mainly second and third year undergraduate students  who have first-hand experience of studying  at LSE. They provide a friendly face for  incoming students who don’t live in halls and  information on the wide range of support  services available at the School. 

Mentors are in touch by email by mid-September to answer any questions that  come up before arriving, periodically  arrange opportunities for their mentoring  groups to get together, and offer  confidential email advice and support  throughout the entire first academic year.  Since mentoring groups often include  students from the same department, this  is a great chance to meet others who are  not living in a hall of residence but may  share similar interests.
