Advice & Support

We are a free, independent and confidential service, offering advice, guidance and representation to all LSE students. Our team of professional advisers are on hand to assist you with a range of issues and can advise and represent you on LSE academic policies - appeals, mitigating circumstances, academic misconduct and complaints. We can also support you with housing matters (including contract checking), applications to the LSESU hardship funds and point you in the right direction for any general queries you may have.

Our Opening Hours

We are open for telephone and email enquiries Monday to Friday 10.30am - 4.30pm.
We have two drop in sessions every day from 11am to 1pm. You can drop in for up to half an hour with an adviser. We have a very busy service so we cannot guarantee that someone will be able to see you when you drop in. To ensure that we will be available when you wish to see us please contact us to arrange an appointment.
If you wish to see an adviser outside of these hours please contact us to arrange an appointment.


Students should come to the SU Reception on the 3rd floor of the Saw Swee Hock Student Centre to book an advice session or for a drop-in. If you have any access requirements please let us know so we can arrange a suitable alternative interview room.
All services are FREE and advice is provided in strict confidence.
