LSE Halls Cup

What Is The Halls Cup?

The LSE Halls Cup was introduced to create unity in the halls community. This is your chance to get active, do great things and overcome challenges, with great people.

If you are not living in the LSE halls but are interested in helping one of the halls gain points through all your extra curricular activities or volunteering, email Residential Life at and you will be assigned a hall.
