What students say

"You will be part of a diverse community. My flat had people from five countries.  The common room is often busy with people relaxing in front of the television, playing pool or table football - and there is always someone around for a chat."

"The walking route to LSE takes in marvellous views of Tower Bridge and the Tower of London (about 40 minutes)."
