Student-led campus tours

Student-led campus tours will take place throughout Welcome (Friday 17 and Monday 20 to Friday 24 September 2021), helping you to get to know the campus from a student perspective.The tours will show you all of the key places that you need to know on campus.

Your tour guide will be an experienced LSE student who can introduce you to key locations, as well as tell you a bit about the past and future of the school.

Tours depart every 10 minutes between 10am and 4pm from the campus tour starting point at John Watkins Plaza (beside the Library). No booking required - just turn up! However you may need to wait a while at peak times.

If you're arriving before or after Welcome, or if you'd just rather get to know the place at your own pace, you can take our self-guided tour instead.
