Whatever your query, big or small, there are a range of people you'll be able to speak to and who will be happy to help whilst you are at LSE.
Browse through the sections below and if you would like more information on a particular type of support then take a look at the information and videos available on our 'Support during your studies' page.
- LSE LIFE: the LSE LIFE team deliver talks and skills workshops, social events and provide a bright, open space in the library where students can work together. The team also offer one-to-one sessions with study advisers who can help you develop key study skills, prepare for exams and dissertation writing, and provide drop-in sessions for academic and personal support.

- LSE Library: the British Library of Political and Economic Science, founded in 1896, is the major international library of the social sciences. It stays open late, has lots of excellent resources and it’s a great place to study. As an LSE student, you’ll have access to a number of other academic libraries in Greater London and nationwide.
