Accommodation for LSE Summer School 2018

Stay in LSE halls while you're attending LSE Summer School. 

Looking for great value, centrally located accommodation during LSE Summer School? There's lots of choice in LSE halls. 

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.
