Accommodation for LSE Summer School 2020

Stay in halls while you're at the LSE Summer School

Choose great value, central London accommodation. All eight halls are within easy travel distance to LSE and you'll stay with lots of fellow students. You can book as soon as you have your course offer. 

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.

Due to the global coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic we are no longer running Summer School in 2020.

Details of the 2020 accommodation are on this page for reference purposes only. Please check our latest news on our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Bankside House is our dedicated hall for Preparatory English course accommodation. It's only available for Prep English, that means that you will need to move from Bankside House to the other hall that you've booked when the main session starts.

All our halls are in Central London, so you won't have to travel far.

Shared rooms

We don't allocate sharers on a random basis. But if you're attending LSE Summer School with someone else and would like to stay together, you can book a shared room.

  • You need to enter the name of your friend when you book. Please have their details to hand when you make the booking.
  • The payment needs be made by one of you, as we can't accept split payments.
  • Both of you must be attending the same LSE Summer School sessions.

Multi-session discount

If you stay for several sessions in a row, the night in between is free of charge.

For example, if you stay for two sessions you stay for 41 nights but only pay for 40 nights, and for three sessions you stay for 62 nights and only pay for 60 nights.

The connecting nights in between are Saturday 11 July and Saturday 1 of August 2020.

We accept payments by credit/debit card. You can pay by bank transfer, but there’s an extra charge and you won’t be able to book online.

    Enter your card details when you make the booking online. Your booking will be confirmed instantly (subject to the payment going through).
