LSE Spaces

LSESU clubs and societies have a variety of spaces to book within the School including classrooms, Old Gym, Badminton Court, and rehearsal rooms.

How to Gain Room Booking Rights & Booking Rooms

  • Only clubs and societies that have fully registered with LSESU can gain room booking rights. This means having an up to date registration form submitted and the President, Treasurer and Secretary having completed all the compulsory training modules. To register your club or society and complete your compulsory training, please see our Committee Hub section.
  • Each club or society can nominate their secretary to have room booking rights – and they must complete the online Booking Spaces training module.
  • This allows you to book rooms with LSESU and rooms with LSE through LSE Resource Booker.
  • Once all the above steps have been completed you will then be approved to have room booking rights. Once you are on the system the LSE Room Bookings Team will send an email with information on how to book a room through Resource Booker.

Rehearsal Rooms

There are certain classrooms on campus that can be used for rehearsals by clubs and societies. Please note that these rehearsal spaces are specifically for fitness/music/drama rehearsals.

If you wish to book a space for rehearsals in one of these classrooms then please email your request to su.arcstaff@lse.ac.uk at least 5 working days in advance.

In your request please let us know:

  • Dates and times you would prefer
  • How many people will be in the rehearsal
  • If this will be a repeat booking
  • Information about who will be leading the rehearsal.

Classrooms are only available for rehearsals on weekday evenings during term-time, and the availability of the rooms may not be the same every week.

Before running a rehearsal:

  • Complete a risk assessment (this will need to be done just once before your first rehearsal and will cover all your rehearsals for the rest of the academic year).
  • If you have a coach or instructor running your session, please ensure they have complete a coaching contract.
  • If you are paying someone to run your rehearsal, then they must invoice your club or society. They cannot be paid in cash.
