Refurbishment and planned maintenance in halls

See what works are planned and in progress at your hall

This page provides information about refurbishment and maintenance works in halls. Before you apply for a place, read and consider this information carefully, as it might affect your preferred hall.

To keep our buildings in good shape, we sometimes have to carry out maintenance and refurbishment works during term-time.

Projects and schedules sometimes change at short notice, but we're aiming to keep the information on this page as accurate as possible. Use this information as an indication of planned work rather than as a detailed plan.

Academic year 2020/21
Between September 2020 and 2021, refurbishment works to levels 1, 2 and 3 in the Rosebery Wing may happen. Details are to be confirmed.


Academic year 2019/20
From 19 August 2019 to June 2020, the 7th, 6th, 5th, and 4th floors in the Rosebery Wing will be refurbished. Works will include drilling at times, and this will be significant during the early phases of the project. There will be noise and vibrations while this work is underway, and dust will occur in areas that are being renovated. LSE will work with contractors on site to manage the project and to minimise the impact on our residents wherever possible.

Noisy work will be restricted to working hours on weekdays. Some limited work may be necessary during the weekend or outside published hours. If any such changes are necessary, we will notify residents in advance and work with them where we can.

Where work involves disruption to other services including water, or if temporary access is required to rooms directly above or below the works, we will liaise with residents to provide advance notice and to schedule any such works to minimise inconvenience. 

We appreciate your understanding while we work to improve our hall and our service to you.
