Welcome back to campus

Welcome back to campus, 15-20 January

Get ready for Winter Term with activities for everyone in our LSE community.

Join us from 15-20 January as we welcome you back to campus with events and activities to help you settle back into life at LSE, prepare for Winter Term, and immerse yourself in opportunities across LSE. 

Join us for a film screening, play a round of mini golf, or test your knowledge at our quiz night. We're also running Library tours, volunteering events, and an LSE showcase to help you discover new opportunities this term - there's something for everyone!
