London School of Economics accommodation
As an London School of Economics student, you will be extremely fortunate – your base is an inspiring, vibrant and colourful international capital. When you stay in our student accommodation in London you’re likely to be at the envy of all of your friends.
London School of Economics was founded in 1895, and in 1900 it joined the University of London. The first degrees were issued in 1902 – but enough with the history lesson!
All you really need to know is that the institution continues to be one of the best in the world for teaching and research across a range of social sciences, as well as in mathematics, statistics, media, philosophy and history. It’s considered to be one of the most selective and prestigious places to study in the world, so if you have managed to get a place, well done you!
The University has fantastic relationships and influence in politics, business and law. Several ‘notable’ people are alumni of the School, and in addition, LSE produces more billionaires than any other University in Europe – that’s always something nice to think about because you never know, you could be next!
As an LSE student, you will be extremely fortunate – your base is an inspiring, vibrant and colourful international capital. Whatever your interests or appetite you will find something to suit your palate or someone to help you along your way – the city is full of ambitious people and great networking connections.
Our LSE accommodation is especially tailored for students just like you and we want nothing more than to see you succeed.
LSE’s location in central London is fundamental to its identity. It’s a vibrant and incredibly cosmopolitan place and by enrolling you’re choosing not just a degree course, but a lifestyle which is both stimulating and part of the ‘real world’. Your campus backdrop is the world-famous London skyline, which will be visible out of every window – it should inspire you to achieve great things.
LSE moved to its present day location in Central London around Westminster all the way back in 1902. However, over the years it’s carried on growing and growing. Several members of royalty have even opened important buildings over the years. There are loads of important places on campus of architectural significance and even statues and public art.
At the turn of the 21st Century, the London School of Economics campus went through a multi-million pound period of renewal. In recent years they’ve also designed an ultra-modern educational facility and increased the overall size.
As you’d imagine, there are incredible research facilities, libraries, and other academic buildings all over the place. However, you’re allowed to catch a break, too. 2014 saw new accommodation for the Students’ Union, where you can visit a bar (of course) as well as a rooftop terrace, learning café, careers advice, a media centre and even sporting facilities like a gymnasium and a dance studio. There are more sporting facilities all over campus, so you can join a team or enjoy a social workout.
When you stay in our London School of Economics accommodation you’re likely to be at the envy of all of your friends. We’ve got a great range of options available to make sure you’re close to where you need to be, at the heart of one of the most incredible cities in the world.
At LSE, you’ll have the opportunity to study a broad range of subjects, although these are often highly specialised. The beauty is that if you can’t spot something you enjoyed at school, you can use your existing skills to try something new – there’s an abundance of options to choose from. Whether you’re philosophical, scientific or mathematically minded, you’ll receive excellent support throughout your time at LSE. Many subjects will even have a direct vocational or professional link.
The School offers a unique opportunity to study the social sciences in central London at an institution respected worldwide for its academic reputation. Although many people aren’t aware of the fact, our lives as we know them today have actually been influenced by the great work being carried out at LSE in fields like social policy – and LSE could be the first step in your journey of being part of something great, too.
LSE promotes knowledge and understanding among all of its students, and as part of that they welcome International students with open arms. In actual fact, over half of the students at the University come from locations outside the UK, and so the University is an exciting mix of cultures and perspectives.
Our LSE accommodation will ensure it’s not all work and no play thanks to its location, but it provides the perfect atmosphere to study when you need it, too.
In terms of pioneering research, London School of Economics are world leaders. So many key findings have been discovered here, and you could be a part of that. When you come to LSE to further your study, you’ll be joined by roughly half the student body – postgraduate study is equally as popular as undergraduate study here.
At LSE, the experts don’t just follow the rules of their subjects – often, they make them! Researchers at London School of Economics have played a unique role in defining and developing some of the key academic subjects that they teach. That why they’re some of the best you can get – in many cases, they literally wrote the book.
You have a wealth of opportunities at LSE, and one of these is to carve your own path. Your individual learning and development as well as gaining expertise in your field are paramount here, because when the School invests in your future, they are potentially investing in everyone’s.

Liberty Living operates in accordance with the National Code of Standards for student accommodation. The Code of Standards is run by ANUK (The Accreditation Network UK), the NUS, and Unipol Student Homes, and is supported by universities across the UK.
Liberty Living joined the Code of Standards to give our students peace of mind. You can be assured that you will enjoy a high standard of living in accordance with the Code of Standards, and a prompt resolution to problems should they ever occur when you stay at any of Liberty Living’s residences.
Liberty Living follow a distinct set of standards for our student accommodation, called the ANUK/Unipol National Codes. The purpose of these Codes, (membership of which is voluntary), is to provide students with professional housing services.
The standards chosen for the Codes reflect a balance of common sense obligations and responsibilities between landlords and tenants. They also reflect established best practice in the sector and are based on what an average student and their parents would expect of a good quality housing supplier. The standards are supported by the voice of students themselves through the National Union of Students.
What does being a member of the codes mean?
- Both parties can enjoy the benefits of good standards of housing management and practice.
- Misunderstandings and disputes are reduced.
- If problems do occur they can be promptly resolved.
- The independent complaints procedure operated by the Codes can be used for complaint resolution.
