How to book a shared room in halls

Share a room with a friend or let us pair you up with someone

This page sums up what you need to know about booking a shared room. 

Only people of the same gender can share a room (unless they’re a couple, in which case you need to book a couple room). 

You have two options to share a room: 

A - share with a friend you already know
B - let us pair you up with a roommate

A - share with someone you know

If you know who you want to share with, you have until 4 August to make an allocation request. We can't guarantee that we can accommodate your request, but we'll do our best to allocate you together.

You can do this from within your accommodation account if your booking is for either: 

  • a space in a shared room
  • a room in a hall that has a flat-style layout

To enter the sharer name, go to 'My summary screen' in your accommodation account and enter an allocation request. Remember to complete this by 4 August. 

Make an allocation request 

If you don't have a booking for either a shared room or a room in a hall with flat-style layout, you won't be able to make an allocation request.

B - let us to pair you up with a roommate


If you don't have a friend you'd like to share with, no problem (many people don't). 

We'll pair you up with someone who is the same gender as you are and who is studying in the same year at LSE.  

All you need to do is select a shared room type from the rooms we show you during your booking.
