Compete in the Halls Cup

To compete in the Halls Cup, all you need to do is to take part in qualifying events and activities. Even if you don't live in halls, you can still be part of the Halls Cup. Email and we'll assign you a hall. 

Points can be collected from Lent term until the end of Summer term. 


Make history by adding your team ribbon to the cup trophy and display it proudly in your hall. Your hall can win one of three prizes:

  • Halls Cup trophy and a prize for the winning hall
  • Student recognition awards

Submitting Halls Cup evidence

Hall committees track their evidence through events logs, photographs and attendance lists. In all other categories, evidence needs to be provided by the event organiser (eg LSE Volunteering Centre, LSE Sustainability Team, LSE SU ActiveLifestyle, LSE Raising and Giving). You can also submit events as an individual student. Make sure you collect evidence of what’s happened and who attended your event or activity. 

Everyone can submit evidence and bank points using the online form:
