Clubs and social environment

Please tell us more about the social environment, sports clubs and societies and anything else you think candidates need to know about life at your university.


"The university has good sports facilities and good social nights out."
"Career-oriented societies are the most popular for obvious reasons and sports is fairly active for certain clubs."
"It's a friendly environment. There are a lot of societies with opportunities to establish your own."
"I'm in the taekwondo club, which I think is very well run with a coach and lessons twice a month. The fee is also quite cheap. LSE has so many business and investment related clubs that many can seem redundant."
"There's a great variety of clubs including opportunities to learn a new language, which is especially useful for international students."
"Sports clubs are very active but we don't have a proper venue to do training or play games. Societies are plenty with many related to finance. There are three pubs within the university that are very close to the tourist areas of London."
"The environment can be competitive at times but there are very good societies such as the intersectional feminist society and home students' society that ease the tension a bit. Be prepared to work regardless of what year you're in because LSE challenges everyone academically, as it should."
"The clubs and societies are good but limited."
"There are a lot of societies and they're very active."
