LSE Undergraduate Offer Holders' Day

LSE Campus, London, United Kingdom

Congratulations on receiving an offer to study at LSE! Our Offer Holders' Day gives undergraduate applicants with an offer of admission the opportunity to visit the campus, meet LSE students and staff, and find out more about studying at LSE and life in London.

The Offer Holders' Day has been designed to ensure that you can obtain the information you need before responding to your offer from LSE.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend subject tasters to find out more about your department and the programme that you hold an offer for 
  • Meet current LSE students and academic staff at department drop-in sessions 
  • Speak to staff from Accommodation, Financial Support, LSE LIFE, Language Centre, LSE Students’ Union (LSESU) and more at our information stands
  • Explore the LSE campus

Bookings for the Offer Holders’ Day are now closed. If you are an undergraduate offer holder and have not already booked a place, you are still welcome to attend – please register in the New Academic Building between 9.30-10.30am on Wednesday 26 April 2023. See the Offer Holders’ Day programme for further information.

If you are not able to attend our Offer Holders’ Day, you can also visit our Virtual Offer Holders’ Day.

If you have any access requirements, please indicate this on the booking form at the time of registering for the event. You are also welcome to contact Claudia Cocozza to discuss your requirements in more detail. 

Accessibility guides for all LSE buildings can be viewed on the AccessAble website.


Do I need to book to attend?

Advance booking is essential. Please refer to the information in the 'How can I attend?' box to select a registration slot and make your booking.

We recommend you refer to the online Offer Holders’ Day programme and book your Offer Holders’ Day place before you arrange travel or accommodation. 

Once you have booked a place at the Offer Holders' Day you will be sent a confirmation email containing a QR code which you will be required to present on the day at registration. 

Do I need to book departmental events or talks separately?

No, you do not need to book subject tasters, department drop-ins or general talks separately. You just need to book a registration slot. Seating in our talks will be allocated on a first come first served basis, so we advise arriving in good time as the most popular sessions do fill up quickly. Talks are repeated throughout the day to allow all students the opportunity to attend and recordings of the sessions will be made available online after the event.

Please note only offer holders will be admitted to the subject tasters. Due to space limitations, parents and other guests will be unable to attend, but are welcome to attend the department drop-in sessions. 

Can I bring guests with me?

When booking a place you will be given the opportunity to book a place for one guest to accompany you. Space restrictions on campus mean that we are unable to accommodate more than one guest per student.

What time do I need to arrive and what time does the Offer Holders' Day end?

You should arrive during the times specified in your chosen registration slot. The first registration slot opens at 9.30am and the last registration slot closes at 11:30am. Activities will be taking place between 9.30am-4.30pm. You do not need to stay for the full day – the programme has been designed to allow you to choose which activities you’d like to attend.

We recommend that you refer to our Offer Holders' Day programme to plan your day in advance.

Is a full programme of events available?

Yes, you can see our programme of events. Please be aware that to reduce the environmental impact of the Offer Holders' Day we will not be providing printed copies on the day.

Can I visit student accommodation?

Two of our halls of residence will be open for tours at the Offer Holders’ Day. Please make your own way to Bankside House or High Holborn halls between 11am and 4.30pm where LSE students will take you on a guided tour of the accommodation and communal areas.

The Residential Services team will also be on hand on the LSE campus throughout the day to answer any questions you have about the different LSE accommodation available, living in halls of residence or elsewhere in London.

How do I get to LSE, and where do I go when I arrive?

Holborn and Temple underground stations are a five to ten minute walk away from LSE.  Use our maps of LSE and directions to the campus to find your way to us. The TfL Journey Planner can help you find your way across London by tube, bus and train.

If you’re staying overnight in London, you may be interested in staying in an LSE hall of residence.

When you arrive at LSE, you should register before attending any other events. Details of the registration location will be contained in your booking confirmation email. 

Can you help with the cost of travelling to the Offer Holders' Day?

If you are currently studying at a state school or college in the UK and living more than 50 miles away from the LSE campus, you may be eligible to apply for the LSE Travel Fund.

The LSE Travel Fund contributes towards the cost of standard rail or coach travel to and from the LSE campus for eligible prospective undergraduate students. Visit the LSE Travel Fund page to find out more about eligibility criteria and how to apply.

Is car parking available?

We recommend travelling to LSE by public transport as parking in the area is extremely limited.

See Westminster Council parking for up-to-date information on parking near LSE, and a map of disabled parking bays near LSE.

What should I bring with me to the Offer Holders' Day?

Please bring your confirmation email containing the QR code. We can scan your code from a phone or tablet; you do not need to print the email.

Can I store my luggage?

We do not have storage facilities at LSE so you will be required to keep personal belongings with you at all times. Consequently, we would ask that you avoid bringing luggage with you. Mainline stations, such as London King’s Cross and London Waterloo, offer paid for left luggage facilities.

Is WiFi available?

Visitors will be able to access The Cloud WiFi. See Join the Cloud.

I can’t make it to the Offer Holders' Day. Can I visit at another time? 

You may wish to attend an Undergraduate Open Day, book a guided or self-guided campus tour, or attend a drop-in consultation with the Student Marketing, Recruitment and Study Abroad team. See the Visit LSE page for information. 

You can also experience LSE from home through our Virtual Undergraduate Offer Holders' Day, LSE Discovery Sessions, Live Chat, student blogs, video diaries, public lectures and webinars.

Recordings of the sessions will also be made available online after the Offer Holders' Day.

I still have questions about the Offer Holders' Day. Who should I contact?

If your questions have not been answered above, please contact the event organiser Alice Else.
