LSE 2024 Entry Accommodation

Recently got an offer from LSE, accepted it through UCAS more than 2 days ago. How do I get an LSE Public Account to be able to book my accommodation? Have yet to receive anything from LSE acknowledging that I have firmed their offer.

I can’t quite remember exactly but first of all for accommodation it needs to be your firm I think and then second I think it took a few days for me and they are closed for Easter so obviously you won’t hear anything until they’re open again I think. Hope that helps

Guys I'd like some advice.
So I received an offer for LSE to do a BSC in Economic History. But there is some serious conflict in my family about it. My parents are saying that the accommodation, travel, living costs are too high for them to afford. Thing is we're not poor, my dads on 75k , about 50k after tax which would kinda suggest I could do it. But this is the thing, my sister also has to go to uni next year (she's in year 12) so the cost almost doubles for both of us. On top of that he has a mortgage to pay and yk lots of other costs. So we really don't have any disposable income. But because of his salary, (mum is a stay at home mum) I'm not eligible for more than about 4 grand maintenance, if that, even in London.

This has been really depressing me because its been my dream to go to LSE and I just don't know what to do.
Any info on how much costs actually are, like a final figure would be helpful to help making my case to my parents. And overall any other advice would be really helpful :smile:

if they can't afford to fully support you, i would say you just need to weigh up your priorities in choosing a uni. living in london might mean you have to make the sacrifice of getting a part-time job (15 hours a week = an extra £150 a week to live on) and living in cheaper accomodation e.g. shared room which can be as low at £120 a week. remember that with student finance you'll get around an extra 2k maintenance loan for London which will help with living costs. however, if these things put you off going to LSE and you'd rather have more free time without a part-time job (and nicer accom), then maybe it isn't the best place to go (which is perfectly fine, everyone has different wants/needs when it comes to choosing a uni). good luck with your choice.

You can go onto the LSE accommodation and see this list of prices ( https://www.lse.ac.uk/student-life/accommodation/assets/documents/table-of-accommodation-fees.pdf). In terms of other expenses it really depends on how much you want to go out and whether you have catered or not. For first year it’s unlikely you’ll spend a lot on travel as accommodation is mainly walking distance away. Tutoring gcse pays quite well and is easy to do - can easily get you £100 a week if you have four students at £25/hr with not much time wasted. I think your student loan is going to be more than 4k. I’d say if you like to go out you’ll probably need £40/50 a week and some extra for extra food. Also is your sister likely to go to a London uni, because if not it’s quite likely her expenses/accommodation will probably be half of yours. Also my parents have definitely noticed a significant decrease in their expenses since we’ve all moved out which I guess will give your dad extra disposable income. If you work a lot in the summer you can definitely earn 2/3/4k which will help a lot. I’d say if you really want to make it work you can and if you see it’s too hard you can always move to another uni next year (it’ll be as if you had a gap year) and I’m sure unis will be more than happy to have an ex-LSE student. Just remember to submit a ucas.
Sorry for the waffle

Does anyone have an ensuite single room at a 39 month catered hall (Rosebury and Bankside) that they are looking to exchange? I'm a little late to the booking and can't find any options left :frown:

Hey, I’m in the same situation. Do you know how exactly an exchange is done? It’s the first I’m hearing of it. Really wish I had firmed LSE sooner 😕
