LSESU Buddy Scheme

Meeting new people and making connections is a huge part of any University experience. We know that that has been harder than ever this year, which is why we’re running the LSESU Buddy Scheme.

If you sign up to the scheme, we’ll randomly match you with up to 3 other LSE students who have also signed up to the scheme.

You are expected to follow all government guidance and LSE rules relating to Covid-19 at all times.

Applications are now closed for the Buddy Scheme. If you have any questions about the scheme, please get in touch at




The buddy scheme is not a replacement for professional or peer-led support. Here are some sources of help you may wish to explore if you're having difficulties.

From Friday 18 December, you can access a 24/7 out of hours mental health support line sponsored by the School via Spectrum.Life. All calls are answered by clinically trained counsellors or psychotherapists. You can talk to them about anything, including stress, anxiety, low mood, financial worries, loss and grief, relationship problems, and substance abuse issues.
