"Both the Shaw Library and its location must be looked after by properly funded staff if it is to continue to be a gathering place for people interested in the arts and the humanities. Being Superintendent of the Shaw Library was a huge privilege that brought me close to the staff and students of LSE who supported and frequented the Shaw Library. My bequest follows directly from the Shaws and the School’s founders and their successors, who rightly see education as going far beyond the lecture theatre and seminar room."
Dr Sally Jenkinson, Shaw Library legacy donor
The acquisition of prestigious buildings over the years has transformed LSE into an integrated city centre campus. Numerous legacies of varying sizes have helped support projects such as the renovation of the Library in the Lionel Robbins Building, the acquisition and complete refurbishment of the New Academic Building, and the development of the School’s first newly constructed building in over 40 years, the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre (pictured below).
A legacy gift can help the School to continue delivering an environment that supports and develops independent thinking among our students and faculty.
“I believe the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre will be a flagship building for Students' Unions everywhere and I am excited that LSE will lead the way in its dedication to providing students with exceptional facilities. It will enable our Students' Union to provide better quality services, welfare support and representation to its students past, present and future."
Alex Peters-Day, general secretary, LSE Student Union
