We've introduced the LSE Accommodation Bursary to encourage students from lower-income households to apply for accommodation in halls.
Who can apply?
To be eligible you need to:
- be a UK national
- be a new first year undergraduate in 2019/20
- be about to register on a full-time LSE course
- have a household income below £25,000 (as means tested by Student Finance England, Student Finance Wales, Student Finance Northern Ireland, or Student Awards Agency Scotland)
How much can you get?
The amount you'll get depends on the number of students who are awarded the bursary. We confirm the exact amount in early September, when we notify applicants whether they have been successful. In 2017, the amounts awarded ranged from £750 to £2,500 (applicants with lower annual household incomes were awarded larger sums).
Which halls and room types can the bursary be used for?
To be considered for an accommodation bursary, you must list at least one of these halls as a preference in your accommodation application. The bursary can be used for any room type in these halls.
