Benefits of living in halls of residence

A great environment to live and learn in while you study at LSE

Strong communities, lots of room choices and halls in amazing locations are just some of the benefits of living with us. Read on to see why living in halls is a great choice. 

If you can get student accommodation, you should definitely take it. It's so much more convenient, and there's always someone there to help.

A strong and supportive community to help you make the most of your time at LSE

Living in halls is great for meeting other LSE students. There's lots of communal space to study and socialise. The hall committees arrange social events, and together with the Wardens and hall staff they'll help you settle in. You'll be immersed in a supportive and inclusive learning environment to help you form friendships with people from all corners of the globe. 

Lots of options

We provide over 4500 places across 14 locations in the centre of London. We offer something for different preferences, needs and budgets. Read more at: Types of contracts, halls and rooms

All inclusive rent

Utility bills, Wi-Fi internet access and contents insurance, as well as the welfare support are included in the rent you pay. Some contracts include catering, so you don't have to cook. Visit: Cost of living in halls

Great value

We regularly check local rents to make sure we offer good value. Compared to similar properties nearby, halls of residence offer better value for money.

Amazing locations

Live close to London landmarks, and in famous areas like Bloomsbury, Clerkenwell or Westminster. You'll even save on travel costs because most residences are within walking distance of LSE.

Safe and secure living

All halls have 24-hour reception and security teams so there's always someone available. Dedicated maintenance staff work in each hall, so any fault will get fixed quickly. Your hall reception team is your point of contact for any query and they'll even sign for your parcels, too!

Welfare support

Just in case anything goes wrong for you or your flatmates whilst you're at LSE, there's a warden team in every hall which can be contacted for help with almost anything (health, finances, exams, relationships and more). They're on duty overnight and all weekend, so there's never a time that support isn't available. Most halls also have a Peer Supporter who are students trained to provide you with a space to talk and be listened to.
