Equity Diversity and Inclusion

The School’s overall work on equity, diversity and inclusion (EDI) is led by LSE’s EDI Office.

LSE Faith Centre

The Faith Centre, found on the 2nd floor of SAW, is a unique space on campus, home to the LSE’s diverse religious activities, transformational interfaith leadership programmes, wellbeing classes, and a reflective space for all staff and students away from the noise of campus life. You can find The Cave for meditation, male and female Islamic prayer and washrooms and a bookable space for all student faith societies. Jummah prayers are held on Fridays in the Venue, in the basement of SAW.  

The Faith Centre team is working to make the LSE campus fully faith-inclusive and we have a team of associate chaplains available to speak confidentially on any issue arising during your time at the LSE regardless of faith or belief.

The Faith Centre is open every day from 9.30am to 5.30pm, with your LSE staff or student card needed for out of hours access. More information on what is going on in the Faith Centre and religious provision at LSE can be found on the Faith Centre web pages and any questions can be emailed to or just ask at the Faith Centre reception.
