First year undergraduates and General Course students are guaranteed an offer of accommodation.

A large number of master's students also choose to live in LSE accommodation.

Priority is given to student with disabilities and special requirements.

There are many other options beyond LSE and University of London residences. They include a rapidly increasing number of privately operated halls of residence. Additionally, there are many options for privately rented accommodation, whether by yourself, with friends, or through collectives in a shared house or apartment.

London accommodation prices are high compared to many cities, but this does not mean cheaper options are not available.

Spending a little more time travelling to the School can mean a significantly cheaper rent, for example. We suggest that you look at travel times from different areas, rather than just distance. The School is in a very good location in regard to public transport, close to stations with several Tube lines and a large number of bus routes. Google Maps is very helpful for this, because you can choose door-to-door public transport or walking routes.

Our advice is not to worry about accommodation, even if you receive an offer quite late in the cycle. London has always been home to a huge number of students and this means that would-be providers are aware of your needs (shorter contracts, for example).
