Being an active member of the Rowing Team, my experience of the LSE Athletic Union is great: we have the chance to practice on one of the most illustrious tideways in the world.
However, at LSE, the AU is what you make of it: the more you give the more you get. Trainings can be demanding, particularly with the academic demands.

Health & Safety:
The school is very secure - as no one lives on campus, there is little attraction for criminal activity.

Though the library can be crowded midway through and towards the end of term (when essay deadlines abound), the opening of the new students center next year should fix that issue, and computers will be widespread across campus.

It's rainy quite often. Depending on where you're from, it can also feel quite cold. Dress warm and bring waterproof clothing!

Health & Safety:
I give LSE a lower grade, not because the university is doing a poor job, but simply because it is an open campus in the center of London and thus there is going to be some theft. I don't feel unsafe on campus, but I am more aware of my belongings than I would perhaps be at a different location.

There are many computers in the library, but there are so many undergraduate and postgraduate students at LSE, that it's difficult to find an unoccupied one. There are not many other computer options, because the labs are usually occupied with class. Bringing your own laptop to school will save you a lot of time you'd otherwise spend trying to find an unoccupied computer.

LSE has a variety of eating places on campus (including pubs, cafeterias, and cafes), but even if you don't find something on campus you fancy, LSE is surrounded by plenty of sandwich shops and other dining options.

Very difficult to park a car. I cannot recommend it.

Has the merits and problems of a central London location

Very good academic quality. Mostly published, some leaders in their field

Good academic qualities. In the international programs, limited opportunities to interact

The library and the new academic building are very recent and beautiful. Most london students use our library which is the biggest social sciences library in the world

LSE is known for being the university with the most diverse student body in the world. 60% of undergrads are international students (of which 40% are asian, 10% european and 10% from the americas)

Public Transportation is almost perfect in London. There are plenty of buses that can take you anywhere quickly, and the underground is useful although it is pretty old. It is too expensive however.
College Junior 2012-10-22T22:49:20Z
Not many on campus restaurants. However the few ones available offer good food for decent prices.

Tourism and Hospitality Management – With a good orientation and close help from the admibistration,I will say it is good.

London the Heart of the UK – My school is located in london,one of the worlds most busy town.most people think London is a country of its own.because of the way it is spoken of and the busy nature of the town.it is also a very expensive town to leave in as it is very expensive

It Was Ok, but Real Life Is Better. University is a learning curve and although enjoyable at the time it is not an experience I would repeat. The grades are important but it doesn't reflect real life.
Recent Alumnus 2011-07-28T23:13:55Z
The campus building are close by so walking is the option everyone uses
Recent Alumnus 2011-07-28T23:12:49Z
With v.good public transport links to the centre of london where the Unoversity is located traveling to college by car is not an option many would choose therefore parking is no real issue.

The Students Are Determined – Although I haven't been to other Universities it would be hard to imagine that any of the students would be more determined to succeed than students at LSE. I feel like every other person is going to be a huge success.

Clubs Are Great – London has some of the best clubs in the world. There is never a shortage of places to go out.
Recent Alumnus 2011-06-28T17:59:45Z
Flats Are Too Expensive – Flats in London are too expensive for students to afford. The only way to get a reasonably priced flat is to live really far from campus which no one wants to do.

Guys & Girls:
The Boys Can Be Boring – I like the boys at LSE but at times they can be too interested in studying as opposed to going out. That's saying something coming from a girl who studies a lot!

Rosebery Hall Is the Best! I can't speak for every student at LSE, but I think Rosebery is the best housing. I lived their my first year and had the best time. Most of the friends I have now lived with me in Rosebery. I miss it!!
Sorry, there are no reviews.
