LSE is an international community, with over 140 nationalities represented amongst its student body. We celebrate this diversity through everything we do.
Student societies and activities
Your time at LSE is not just about studying. There are plenty of ways to get involved in extracurricular activities. From joining one of over 200 societies, or starting your own society, to volunteering for a local charity, or attending a public lecture by a world-leading figure, there is a lot to choose from.
LSE is based on one campus in the centre of London. Despite the busy feel of the surrounding area, many of the streets around campus are pedestrianised, meaning the campus feels like a real community.
Life in London
London is an exciting, vibrant and colourful city. It's also an academic city, with more than 400,000 university students.

Make the most of career opportunities and social activities, theatre, museums, music and more.
London is a great city for students, with plenty of sights, experiences, and opportunities to explore. Contrary to popular belief, London doesn't have to be super expensive: hear about London on a budget.
