35 Lincoln's Inn Fields becomes part of LSE!

Many of you will be aware that the School underwent some interesting and prolonged negotiations with our friends and neighbours the Royal College of Surgeons (RCS) to acquire the 155 year lease of 35 Lincoln’s Inn Fields (35L); that was at the back end of 2017 and now we are delighted to announce that the School formally took vacant possession, as of 1 July 2021.

The RCS have moved out of 35L and into their newly rebuilt historic home on Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

The building has now been safely secured and we are currently undertaking surveys and preparatory works, pending redevelopment.  An outline business case is being prepared this summer in order to secure funding for a redevelopment of the site into a LSE Academic building.  We will update this page as the project progresses so why not bookmark it for easy access.
