Study space and IT facilities

 

Outside class/seminar time we encourage you to take advantage of the campus where possible studying in designated study spaces, visiting the Library and catering venues, and interacting with other students while following the guidance laid out in the Covid-Safe Code. This is aimed at keeping us all safe and encouraging students to partner with us in taking a positive responsible approach to following the rules and guidance, as well as being respectful of other members of the LSE community who are sharing the same spaces. 

All staff and students are expected to wear masks at all times inside LSE buildings, to respect Social Distancing and to wipe down spaces before and after use. 

Additional bookable study spaces

The School has been working hard to provide additional spaces for you to study in a Covid-secure way across the campus. We have made a range of possibilities available to you: bookable study spaces through the LibCal system, PC study spaces and open access social learning spaces, full details can be found here.

Booking study spaces

Outside classes and seminars, you are able to book study spaces via this link. At the current time, you can book study slots on a daily basis. Due to high demand, we are monitoring the uptake and manage availability and may have to limit the number of slots per week.

150 new study spaces outside those available in the Library have also been added. They are also bookable via the Libcal system and include PC study spaces. All the bookable study spaces have been planned to ensure they are Covid secure. 

 

Social learning spaces

There are also a number of informal social and learning spaces across campus which you can use for individual student, group-work or socialising with other students. Clear signage summarising safe behaviours and reminding us all of the social distancing rules have been placed across campus. Please note that there are certain clearly marked spaces that are not permitted for use at the present time

iRoam laptops

iRoam, the Macbook Air laptop loan service, allows students to borrow a fully charged laptop for use within the Library building without needing to book in advance. The laptops provide access to h: space, Office software and the internet. Visit iRoam for more details.

Computer classrooms

There are a number of computer classrooms equipped with PCs across campus that are used for class teaching and IT skills training. They are open to any member of the School for their individual work at other times. If you are in a computer room that is required for a class, please leave the room as quickly as possible. If a class is in progress please do not enter unless you are a member of that class.
