Treasure Hunts!

Join our treasure hunt to discover LSE's surrounding areas, and get to know your fellow new students in your programme. Sign up here!

BSc – 11am – 2pm on 22 September.

MSc – 11am – 2pm on 24 September.

This treasure hunt will take you over an area of central London within walking distance of the LSE campus, taking up to two hours to complete.

You'll be working in teams of up to six people from your programme. Each team will be allocated a different starting point, and have different treasure hunt routes, which will stop you from accidentally forming big groups.

The game is run through an app, which one member of the group will need to download onto their phone - the game will require a mobile phone signal to access the internet.

At each location you'll unlock a challenge and fun information, including:

• answering questions

• questions against the clock

• items to find

• creative photos and videos to shoot
