Refurbishment and planned maintenance in halls

See what works are planned and in progress at your hall

This page provides information about refurbishment and maintenance works in halls. Before you apply for a place, read and consider this information carefully, as it might affect your preferred hall.

To keep our buildings in good shape, we sometimes have to carry out maintenance and refurbishment works during term-time.

Projects and schedules sometimes change at short notice, but we're aiming to keep the information on this page as accurate as possible. Use this information as an indication of planned work rather than as a detailed plan.

Bankside House planned works

As part of LSE's continued commitment to enhance our halls and services, essential building work will be completed in Bankside House between June and September 2021.

Building work will be restricted to floors that will be closed to visitors and will not take place on any floor where we have guests staying with us. Building work will generally take place Monday to Friday between the hours of 8:00am and 17:00pm with "noisy work" restricted to between the hours of 10:00am and 17:00pm. While weekend work is not scheduled, if this becomes necessary, we will endeavour to give advanced notice.

We will endeavour to minimise disturbance to our visitors. As with all building work however, a degree of disruption is to be expected and we offer our sincere apologies in advance for any disruption this may cause our visitors this summer. Please contact us at banksidereception@lse.ac.uk with any questions.

Rosebery Hall planned works

Academic year 2020/21
As part of LSE’s commitment to improving facilities at Rosebery Hall, the refurbishment of bedrooms on levels 1, 2 and 3 is due to commence in March 2021, with target completion in early September 2021.

As with all major refurbishment programmes, there will be some noise disruption, dust and early morning deliveries. Generally contractors will be onsite from 8.30am to 17.30pm Monday to Friday. Noisy works will be restricted to take place between 10:00am and 16:00pm, Monday to Friday, and there will be no works on site during the exam/assessment period. Quiet areas of the hall will be made available for study.

There may be times throughout this programme when weekend work may be needed, or the times of work may need to be amended, however notice will be given to residents if this occurs.

We will keep residents informed of the progress of the work via weekly schedules and updated on any alterations to the programme. Residents will be able to find more information, including the location of study/quiet areas, through our social media, email, and our project noticeboard, which is located in the basement outside the restaurant.
