Who is this service for?

The SSC Live Chat is for campus enrolled students studying on taught degree programmes. It is not intended to be used by staff, as you can get in touch by email or via Teams.  We regret that we are unable to assist with queries on the following areas via Live Chat:

  • Potential applicants to LSE - our Student Marketing and Recruitment team have their own Live Chat
  • Applicants and offer holders - the Student Services Centre is not involved in the admissions process so will be unable to advise on the progress of your application or meeting the conditions of your offer. You will need to contact the relevant admissions team.
  • Offer holders and students seeking specialist immigration advice - you should contact the Student Advice and Engagement Team through their dedicated channels.
  • Research degree students - you will need to speak to the PhD Academy
  • Fees, Income and Credit Control 
  • IT Technical Support
  • Alumni - please complete our external contact form

Who will I chat to?

The SSC Live Chat is run by staff from all of our teams.  You may not be chatting to a specialist in the area you are querying. Staff may refer you to our contact form so that you get a response from the correct team.

Live Chat is intended for quick queries as a complementary service to the SSC counter and  enquiry form.  If your query is urgent and you are on campus, it would be better to come in person to the Student Services Centre (10:00 am to 4:00pm Monday to Friday).

If you have made a request via our enquiry form for verification letters or transcripts, please wait five working days before contacting us. These cases are dealt with by the respective teams and our Live Chat operators are unable to expedite cases that are within that timeframe

How do I access it? 

You can chat to us by clicking on the linked box on the right-hand side of this page.You will be asked to enter your name, surname, email, LSE ID number and subject of your chat. 

If you receive a message that no agents are available, it means that we are busy with chats.  You can still get in touch by coming to the Student Services Centre or completing an enquiry form.
