Other housing assistance

Other ways we can help staff with housing in London

Information about emergency rooms for staff, staff discounts with LSE Vacations and private landlord listings on LSE Studentpad

Emergency rooms for staff

During tube strikes, exceptionally bad weather or other emergency incidents, overnight accommodation may be available for key staff who experience travel problems. Rooms are available on a first-come first-served basis and are charged at £20 per room per night. Approval from the head of service/head of department is needed if payment is to be made from a School budget.

To check availability and to make a booking, contact Samantha Da Costa at faculty.accommodation@lse.ac.uk or call 020 3437 0050.

LSE Vacations staff discount

If you are looking for accommodation for leisure purposes, LSE Vacations may be able to help. Most of our residences open commercially during the vacations and some short stay accommodation is also available during term time. Discounted rates are available to all LSE staff. To receive the staff discount, please make your booking via telephone. For more details visit: LSE Vacations - a great alternative to London Hotels

Private landlord lettings on LSE Studentpad

The Residential Services Office (RSO) maintains a database of lettings from private landlords. They're primarily for students, but RSO staff have a wealth of experience and can offer advice and assistance to staff, too. To view the listings, visit: LSE Studentpad  (registration required)
