LRBS is held at Senate House, University of London, Malet Street, London, WC1E 7HU Some LRBS courses involve travel to offsite locations. Students are expected to make their own way to any offsite location, and to pay for their own travel. Specific details about offsite sessions are provided in the course handbooks.


A wide range of accommodation is available in the area close by to Senate House where most of the LRBS teaching takes place. LRBS participants will need to make their own arrangements for accommodation. We have some suggestions available on our accommodation page. This includes details for the University of London's intercollegiate halls of residence (please refer to the prices under the 'Visitor's heading).  In all cases, please arrange accommodation directly.
