At a student focus group I attended, many felt that they were missing out on interesting events simply because they weren’t informed. I took part in testing the Student Hub because I wanted to help make sure the app would solve the problem.
With the app, it’s easier than ever for students to find out about and attend events at LSE, leading to students feeling more connected to the School and each other.
Download the Student Hub from the App Store or Google Play, or visit the web app here.

From being a member of a student Halls committee, Vice-President of a society and Trustee for the Student Union, I have developed a taste for the kind of career I desire: one that serves others. The key is to be proactive. With world-class resources both within LSE and the SU’s 250+ clubs and societies – opportunity surrounds us. Make the most of it!
LSE Students' Union (LSESU) is run by LSE students, for LSE students. Find out how they represent you during your time as a current student.

The Halls Cups started off as a competition, but led to overall team bonding and lots more events and parties to look forward to! It’s a great initiative that leads to residents taking an active role in building community – making our campus and halls better, more fun places to live.

Societies have enriched my LSE student experience beyond the classroom. Participating in different societies has given me friends for life, enabled me to explore my interests, and above all helped me develop as a person.
As President of RAG, I won an award for my contribution to the LSE community, but my fondest memories come from working with incredible students who showed me the fun in fundraising!
Becoming a member of a society is one of the best ways to get more out of your time at LSE. Discover the 200+ societies at LSESU, and how you can start your own.

Being an LSE student is more than just coursework and qualifications – it’s also about starting to build a career. That is why we are immensely proud of the five Undergraduate Research Assistantships we’re offering this year. This donor-funded programme runs until 2023, and is an opportunity for undergraduates to work directly with academic faculty on challenging US-related interdisciplinary research.

Being part of the undergraduate programme review was a great way to use student research and expertise to improve education and experiences at LSE.
There has been so much positive change in recent times, with departments taking on board our recommendations, changing programmes, and making it easier for students to get to know each other.

Assessments can be challenging for students and staff, so it’s important to make processes involved as easy and straightforward as possible.
The changes that will be made over the next few years as part of the Assessment Service Change project will have a significant, positive impact on student experience. I’m looking forward to seeing what we will achieve in partnership with students.

LSE LIFE advisors are my superheroes. It’s a haven for students where they feel taken care of, understood and supported. I had so much fun learning in LIFE’s workshops, one-to-ones and seminars.
I have learned something valuable from each one of the team and they have all helped me take charge of my own learning and development – both academically and personally.
LSE LIFE offers academic support as well as space to dicuss ideas with the LSE learning community.

The Off Campus Support Scheme connects new undergraduate students not living in School accommodation with the LSE community. It is coordinated by the Student Services Centre, but our volunteer student mentors make the real contribution. We work with mentors to provide support and they dedicate their time, knowledge and enthusiasm to help new students feel part of LSE.
The Off-Campus Support Scheme is just one of the ways the Student Services Centre provides support for students. Visit them for help with everything from general enquires and transcript requests to advice about visas and fees.
William Stein, Department of Geography
There are two types of people in this world. Those who complain about things and those who change things. Only through perseverance, patience and working in partnership with my Department was I able to lead change, creating the first ever Geography Ball last year. I think others should work with departments in the same way.

Learning about some of the challenges that students face, raising their aspirations and sharing their joy when they make it to amazing universities has made me more passionate than ever about social missions and inequality.
