Staff Benefits

At LSE, a wide range of benefits are available to you

As a member of LSE staff, you'll be provided with a competitive salary and generous pension scheme, as well as benefiting from excellent training and development opportunities.

However, we are acutely aware that there are other considerations important to you. With this in mind, we provide numerous other attractive benefits to help actively encourage a positive, diverse, healthy and family friendly culture in our workplace.

LSE Extras

It only takes a moment to sign up to the School's benefits platform for staff - just click here to get started. Access a huge range of discounts (including groceries and holidays), and see all your LSE perks at a glance! 

You can create an account on LSE Extras using your name as it's recorded in our system and your payroll number. If you aren't quite sure what your payroll number is, you can find it on your payslip - alternatively, you can find out by logging into MyView and selecting 'Account' followed by 'View my details'. 

If you experience any issues with creating an account, try using your payroll number but without the initial '0'. If it's still not working, just contact and we'll be happy to help. 


Cyclesheme is a salary-sacrifice voucher scheme that not only allows you to keep fit while travelling to work, but allows you to save up to 30% on the cost of a new bike! 

Further information is available on our dedicated Cyclescheme webpage.

Eyesight tests for VDU users

The School has a duty to provide an eyesight test, or cost towards an eye test, for employees who habitually use display screen equipment as a significant part of their normal working hours.

Please contact if you have any queries. 

Season ticket loans

Applications may be made for a loan to cover the cost of a second class season ticket for travel between home and the School.

Purchasing an annual season ticket is generally cheaper than purchasing monthly or weekly tickets, and the loan makes the cost of an annual ticket more manageable by allowing repayment over 12 monthly instalments. 

Further information is available on our season ticket loans webpage.

LSE gym membership

The School knows how important it is to stay fit and healthy.  Having a gym right here on campus is a huge benefit.  In order to encourage more staff to join the LSE Student Union Gym, staff can now request for a loan to pay for annual membership.  Paying for annual membership works out cheaper than paying monthly.

For information about the LSE Students' Union Gym please click on our dedicated gym membership page.

Give as you earn

The Give As You Earn (GAYE) scheme is a tax efficient way of giving to a registered charity of your choice via the Charities Aid Foundation. 

You can make donations to any charitable or voluntary organisation ranging from national charities to local community groups. 

Fee remission

Staff may claim remission of fees in respect of part-time degree and diploma programmes taken at the School. Please contact the Finance Division Fees team at if you have any queries.


Senior common room

As a member of staff, you are invited to become a member of the Senior Common Room, which plays a central role in the academic and social life of the School.
