LSE’s community and central London location are central to our identity. 

Students are expected to arrive in London for the start of their programme. However, some students may, exceptionally, not be able to arrive in London at the start of their studies due to coronovirus travel restrictions. If this were to affect you, we will support you by offering flexible arrangements at the beginning of Michaelmas Term. Students should aim to arrive in London as soon as possible to join their programmes for in-person teaching and no later than 22 October.

If you are returning from interruption in Lent Term, please check back in early December for information about latest dates for arrival on Campus. 

Please make sure you have completed a Covid Test and reported a negative result prior to visiting SSC, this requirement will remain in place up to and including 19 September.  The LSE Security team will be asking for evidence of a negative test taken within the last 4 days before allowing you access to campus buildings, including the Old Building. 

Online Pre-enrolment and Online Re-registration

If you are a new student, you will receive an email notification when it is time to pre-enrol online for your programme. Please visit the Registration webpages for further information about online pre-enrolment. 

If you are a continuing student, you will receive an email notification when it is time to re-register online for your programme. Please visit the Re-registration webpage for further information about re-registering online.

Please pre-enrol online (new students) or re-register online (continuing students) as soon as you can, even if you are not due to arrive on campus until after Welcome. 

The latest date to pre-enrol and campus enrol, or re-register online is 22 October 2021.

Please ensure that you pre-enrol online by the latest date of registration for your programme if this is earlier than 22 October 2021. Check with your department for further information.

You should campus enrol as soon as possible after your arrival in London. Campus Enrolment slots are available in Michaelmas Term Weeks 1 to 4 (Monday 27 September to Friday 22 October). 

If you arrive in this period, you must book an enrolment slot via the Student Hub. Please search for Campus Enrolment 2021-2022 Academic Year, select the date you would like to attend and then you can select a time slot. Michaelmas Term Week 4 dates are as follows:
