Westminster common room

Accommodation for LSE Summer School 2022

Stay in halls while you're at the LSE Summer School

Choose great value, central London accommodation. All four halls are within easy travel distance to LSE and you'll stay with lots of fellow students. You can book as soon as you have your course offer. 

The hall was centrally located and the rooms were lovely. But the best is that you get to share with other students on your course, so it's super easy to socialise and enjoy London together.

We are now taking bookings for Summer School 2022 accommodation. 

We have added extra rooms at Rosebery Hall for sessions 2 and 3.

The rates at this hall include breakfast from Mon-Fri at the Fourth Floor Restaurant.

June – September 2022 : During the summer, LSE will upgrade the student common room and restaurant. Students may see contractors in the main courtyard and there may be some noise impact. Noisy working hours will be between 10am and 5pm, and every care will be taken to ensure disruption is minimised. It is not planned for work to take place at weekends, however this will be updated if weekend work becomes necessary.
