Terms of LSE Summer School accommodation

How to make a booking

Book online using your LSE Summer School username and password 

You will receive those from the LSE Summer School Office. You'll need to log in with your LSE Summer School username and password to make a booking. Once you have those, we recommend you book your accommodation straight away. 

Booking shared rooms

If you're planning to attend Summer School with a friend, and you would like to share a room, please have their details ready when you book. You will need to enter your sharer's name when you make the booking, and the payment needs to come from one of you. We don't allocate sharers on a random basis.

Prep English course accommodation

Our dedicated hall for Preparatory English course accommodation is Bankside House. Bankside House is only available for Prep English courses. That means that you will need to move from Bankside House to the hall that you've booked for the main session when the main session starts. All halls are in Central London, so you won't have to travel far. 

Multi-session discount

If you book multiple consecutive sessions, then the connecting night from Saturday to Sunday is free of charge. So for one session you pay for 20 nights, and for two sessions you only pay for 40 nights but stay for 41 nights. And if you book all three sessions, then you can stay 62 nights but only pay for 60.
