What can you do?
If you are looking to live in student accommodation (often referred to as “halls”), the LSE Accommodation team can assist you with applying for and booking halls vacancies. You can also search for student accommodation including student homes, flats and lodgings via LSE StudentPad.
If you are looking to rent a room in the private sector (i.e. not student specific), there are a number of ways you can do this. You could either go direct to an estate agents or search via a listing site. There are numerous sites which list rental vacancies, two of the more common are SpareRoom and Zoopla.
What can we do?
Our advisers are more than happy to have a look at any housing contracts before you sign them to see if there is anything unusual or concerning, as well as answer any questions you may have. Remember not to sign anything unless you are 100% comfortable with it and understand the contract fully.
If you have been unable to find an answer to your question or would like to speak to one of our Advisers you can contact us in a few different ways.
The LSESU Advice Service is based on the third floor of the Student Union, Saw Swee Hock Building right in the heart of campus. We provide free, independent and confidential advice to all LSE students on academic and housing matters, as well as administering the Hardship Fund, the Childcare Fund and the Graduation Gown Support Fund. We can be contacted either via email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by making a booking on Student Hub. We can provide advice and support via email, telephone, Zoom or face-to-face appointments.
