LSE Undergraduate Open Day

Hosted by the Student Marketing, Recruitment and Study Abroad team

LSE Campus, London, United Kingdom

An Open Day is a fantastic opportunity to hear from LSE students and academics, explore the campus and gain an insight into what it's like to be an LSE student.

The LSE Open Day has been designed to ensure that you can obtain all the information you need to make a well-informed choice when applying to university.

You will have the opportunity to:

  • Attend subject talks to find out more about our degree programmes
  • Meet current LSE students and academic staff
  • Speak to staff from Financial Support, LSE LIFE, Language Centre, Accommodation, LSE Students’ Union (LSESU) and more at our information stands
  • Attend talks about Applying to LSE, Careers and a specific talk for Parents/Carers
  • Explore the LSE campus

Please do not turn up on the day without a booking - you will not be permitted to attend the Open Day events.

Book your place in the 'How can I attend' section.

Photography and filming will be taking place at the Undergraduate Open Day. The footage may be used in print and digital media, including but not limited to, websites, print publications, social media and marketing materials.


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 Open Day programme and book your Open Day place before you arrange travel or accommodation.

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

Please do not turn up on the day without a booking. You will not be permitted to attend Open Day events. 

Do I need to book subject talks separately?

No, you do not need to book subject 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. We cannot exceed the legal capacity of the venues so once the venue is full, we will have to turn people away. 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 prospective students will be admitted to the subject talks. Due to space limitations, parents and other guests will be unable to attend.

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 can I do at the Open Day?

You will have the opportunity to:

- Attend subject talks delivered by academic departments

- Attend talks delivered by LSE Careers, Undergraduate Admissions, LSE Students’ Union and current students

- Visit information stands and speak to staff from Financial Support, LSE LIFE, LSE100, the Language Centre, Accommodation, LSE Students’ Union (LSESU), Disability and Wellbeing and more

- Explore the LSE campus

See our Open Day programme to plan your day.

If you need help deciding where to go or require directions on the day, there will be lots of Student Ambassadors on campus who will be happy to help.

Is a full programme of events available?

See our Open Day programme of events. Please be aware that to reduce the environmental impact of the Open Day, we will not be providing printed copies on the day.

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 Open 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 Open 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 Open Day. Can I visit at another time?

There are other opportunities to visit LSE, including guided and self-guided campus tours, and appointments with the Student Marketing, Recruitment and Study Abroad team.

You can also experience LSE from home through our Virtual Undergraduate Open 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 Open Day.

I still have questions about the Open Day. Who should I contact?

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

Group bookings

If you would like to make a booking for a school or college group of ten or more students in Year 11 or above, please contact Claudia Cocozza.

We are unable to accommodate group bookings for tour groups.

Cancellation Policy

Please note that as a result of circumstances or events outside of our control (known as a Force Majeure event), which includes but is not limited to industrial action, official government advice, fire, flood or other environmental or physical damage to premises, we may need to cancel an event at short notice.

In the event of a cancellation, a change of venue or date, we will endeavour to notify attendees wherever possible through the contact details given at the time of booking. For the avoidance of doubt, the School will not be liable for any costs you may incur as a result of any cancellation, change of venue or date.
