In this day and age, you would be hard-pressed to find a student at any university who doesn't have a personal computer—and LSE is no different. This is a good thing because, while there are many desktop computers and laptops to take out at the library, you would be the luckiest person in the world to get one. However, it is easy to have a laptop, due to the presence of a large secondary market and the availability of an extensive staff of genius IT personnel.
While the LSE Library (also known as the British Library of Political and Economic Science) is one of the largest in the world devoted to the study of political and economic science, it is always jam-packed with students. The best way to do work is on your own computer, which can be done at any location on campus on the school's seamless wireless network. In fact, the school would not function nearly as effectively without this network. Most homework articles, class details, and essay submissions are carried out entirely online, and without a near-perfect wireless network, the school would fall apart. During Lent term (spring semester), the library is open 24 hours a day. This is essential because there are many students who fully utilize this surface.
