LSE Undergraduate Offer Holder Accommodation 2024/25

Hi! I couldn't find a page where offer holders who have firmed talk about accommodations for 2024/25 and answer any questions since the application for accommodations for LSE is quite confusing. plus I was hoping that we could all connect before arriving :smile:

here's some questions:
- what course are you studying?
- what accommodations are you considering/ have you booked?

hi! I'm studying politics and economics and hope to stay at garden halls or Bankside since I heard that the social scene there is pretty good. i heard that carr saunders is also pretty social but on the small side. :smile:

Hi! I just firmed LSE for Geography BA, leaning towards Bankside aswell, in rlly nice location and the fact that it has its own bar and is catered should make it easier than other halls to socialise and meet people during freshers.

Hi! Econ offer holder here hoping to stay at Passfield, anyone else going Passfield as would be great to maybe make a gc before september
Hi, I was just wondering if anyone has successfully booked their accommodation as of yet, I logged in to apply on the hallpad website and it just displayed "Applications are not currently being accepted for the forthcoming academic year" for 2024/25. I'm not really sure what is going on

I just firmed LSE for law yesterday but I'm not sure about next steps. Will LSE send me a link and login details to book accommodation? I was also thinking of going for bankside or passfield

Hey everyone, the LSE accommodation booking site seems to be down and has been like that for a few days! Is anyone else experiencing this too?
Firmed on Friday, should I get an email today? Hoping to book before the offer holders day.
Is there any disadvantages to staying at an intercollegiate hall- International Hall?

Does anyone know anything to help me pick between Passfield, International Hall, or Bankside?

hi here is a little list of things about these halls that I made before booking - hope this helps. here is a link that gives more info on the different halls e.g what is near by, 360 room tours, etc: https://www.lse.ac.uk/student-life/accommodation/apply/types-of-contracts-halls-and-rooms

Passfield

15 min via public transport/ 25 min walk to LSE

not many single ensuites (4 in total hall) so probs already booked

have to share a toilet with 20ish people

catered - don't have to cook

31 week contract - have to move things out of room at xmas & easter - works if you are a home student but very inconvenient if an international student

undergrad LSE students only

International

40 week contract - no need to move out at xmas & easter - better for int students

intercollegiate - students from other unis e.g KCL&UCL

catered & selfcatered options

19 mins via public transport to LSE/ 19 min walk

mixed undergrad & post grad

booked through UoL


Bankside (no bias but I did book bankside single ensuite)

all ensuites are booked BUT if you book single room you will only have your bathroom with one other person

known as most social hall - even on yt vids past students all agree on this

catered w/ kitchens on each floor so you can still cook if your craving something

can get a mini fridge for your room for only 30 pounds

39 week contract - don't have to move out at xmas or easter

quiet study place

not too far from LSE : 25 min by public transport/ 30 min walk across millennium bridge

LSE undergrad students only

Thank you! That rly helps. If u apply with medical conditions that requires an ensuite would it be possible to still book at Bankside? Does anyone have any ideas how this would work?
Booked Bankside (studying Econ History) yesterday
