Facilities: The library and the new academic building are very recent and beautiful. Most london students use our library which is the biggest social sciences library in the world

Facilities: The Students Are Determined – Although I haven't been to other Universities it would be hard to imagine that any of the students would be more determined to succeed than students at LSE. I feel like every other person is going to be a huge success.

3 College Senior

Facilities: The classrooms and academic buildings at LSE are top notch. The athletic facilities are not. The LSE gym is constantly overcrowded and aside from the gym, the university does not even provide any other athletic facilities to speak of. I understand that most students are not athletes but the LSE has to do better.

3 College Senior

Facilities: Library Is Too Crowded – All of the academic facilities at the LSE are in top form, but the school is in desperate need of a second library. There are often times when you try to go study, especially during exam periods, and will not be able to find a single place to sit. The library itself is fantastic but more seating has to be available to suit students needs.

Facilities: I think the best thing about LSE is that it really focuses students on preparing for the job world. The school organizes many events centered around preparing students for potential challenges they may face when they leave school and enter the job market. Aside from the school events the Student Union Clubs also organize many events which give students direct access to companies that they might be interested in.

The academic facilities at LSE are truly impressive. When you walk through campus under the elevated walkways and grand building entrances, it is hard not to be a little in awe. Every building is meticulously well-kept, and every classroom is state-of-the-art, equipped with a projector, screen, whiteboard, computer, and video-taping system. If a teacher ever has a problem with any of the equipment, he or she picks up a landline located in every classroom and dials IT services. They arrive within minutes and fix the problem. This just goes to show that what is so impressive about the LSE campus is not merely its buildings, but rather the level of care that goes into keeping the technological systems functioning—for it is these technological systems that in turn keep the University functioning.

The most impressive building on campus is without a doubt the British Library of Political and Economic Science—the largest in the United Kingdom devoted to these areas of study. There is a beautiful Guggenheimian spiral staircase reaching to the sixth floor of the library, taking students to more than 1,700 study spaces. Students can check out, return, and pay fines for books without ever having to utter a single word to the librarian—it is truly a well-oiled machine. The athletic facilities, on the other hand, are almost not worth mentioning. The gym is small and constantly overcrowded. The basketball court could double for a walk-in closet. This goes without saying, however. The LSE has not professed to be a place where students can better themselves physically.
