Student life

We know there’s more to life than studying and that a lot of what you’ll get out of your time at LIS will happen outside the classroom.

As an LIS student, you’ll be part of the fast-paced, intensive, and fun journey of building a new university. That means you’ll have a unique opportunity to play a key role in co-creating events and establishing clubs, societies, and traditions that future students will enjoy for years to come.

Some of our student-led clubs & societies are sports-based (football, climbing, boxing) and others are interest-based (music, podcasting, exploring cultures, LGBT+, art).

If you want to launch your own club or society, go for it. We’ll provide you with the support to make it happen.

We organise a range of activities to complement your learning. Our students can expect guest talks, industry visits, competitions, film nights, professional events, and much more.

What's it like to live in London?

There are 32 boroughs in Greater London, stretching from the City of London and Westminster, to surrounding areas like Chelsea, Camden, Richmond, Hackney and Islington.

It’s big, but it’s easy to jump on a train, tube or bus to experience everything on offer – from food pop-ups to world famous music acts, free museums and West End shows.

Fantastically diverse and historical, with many industries and businesses based here to kickstart your career, London is one of the most desirable – if pricey – cities in the world.

Campus and facilities

Our campus is based in Whitechapel (just off Brick Lane) in east London.

The building itself has a long history of philanthropy, community, and social action. It was the location for the original Salvation Army Mission Hall which supplied food to the local area and later became the Salvation HQ.

The building has since been expertly transformed into a flexible working space, which LIS shares with other purpose-driven organisations.
