What students say

"High Holborn location is right in the heart of the West End​ and only five to ten minutes from LSE. The hall has a warm, welcoming feel and staying close to the LSE campus during my first year has been invaluable."

"Living with flatmates has been a great social experience with lots of events held in the common room that all the residents can get involved in."
