London residents, and visitors alike, hail from around the world and combined speak over 300 languages. Don't be surprised if during your first days in London you are asked for directions; as you simply cannot tell a local from a foreigner. Hyde Park, Kew Gardens, and Regent's Park are but a sampling of the abundant parks and open spaces scattered throughout London. And of course you can't miss the many royal palaces scattered throughout London and nearby towns.

The capital city has over 300 museums, 250 art galleries, 200 theaters, 6 full time symphony orchestras, and more than 600 cinema screens. Concerts, celebrities, movie premiers, theatre productions, sporting events, and world news headlines are constantly keeping London in the spotlight.

London is truly in a league of its own and no matter what your taste, studying abroad in London is sure to provide you with many wonderful memories!

Program Housing

LSE Summer students stay in Carr Saunders accomodations during their summer abroad. Carr Saunders can accommodate students in standard single and double rooms with shared bathroom facilities.


The residence is near the Telecom Tower just off Tottenham Court Road, approximately a 25-minute walk from LSE.


Each floor has a basic kitchen for students to prepare breakfast, snacks and light meals at their convenience. Kitchens have refrigerators, freezers, microwaves, a small stove, kettles and toasters. Residents have access to a large common room with pool and TVs, computer room, and WI-FI is included throughout the building. Coin-operated laundry is available.

Cleaning and bed linens:

The overall cleanliness of your room is your responsibility. However, all communal areas, including bathrooms and kitchens, will be cleaned on a daily basis. In addition, the hall provides duvets and pillows to summer residents. You must bring your own bed linens and towels.


Special Considerations

Below you will find information that may help you in planning for your study abroad experience. Early discussions and planning can help to support you in having a positive experience abroad. We invite you to meet with the International Coordinator for this program to discuss any questions or concerns you may have.

Physical Considerations

Study abroad participants may find themselves walking or taking public transit abroad more frequently than they are accustomed at their home campus.

Disability Accommodations Abroad

Individuals with disabilities can and do study abroad, but may find accessibility and accommodation in one of more of this program’s locations very different from the United States. For example, in the UK, getting around cities may be difficult at times because sidewalks can be narrow and uneven. Most London Underground and UK National Rail System stations are not readily accessible for people with disabilities. 

In general, the Study Abroad Office cannot guarantee access to public transportation, buildings, or public sites on this program. Any student who anticipates needing any kind of special accommodation due to a disability should contact the ASU Study Abroad Office early in the planning process to investigate the availability of accommodations (including accessible facilities) on this specific program. Contact the Disability Resource Center and your Disability Access Consultant to include them in the discussion; be sure to give your Disability Access Consultant permission to speak with the Study Abroad Office on your behalf. You can find additional information and resources on our Students with Disabilities page.

LGBTQIA Students Abroad

Students of diverse sexual orientations or gender identities will find that the social climate, laws, and norms of other cultures will often differ from the U.S. If you identify as a lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, or queer student - or if you are still exploring your identity - you may face unique challenges when traveling abroad.

We encourage students who identify as members of the LGBTQIA community to visit the U.S. Department of State website for helpful information about laws and attitudes in this program’s locations, including pre-travel tips and advice on staying safe while abroad. You can find additional information and resources on our LGBTQIA Students page.

Gender Identity Abroad

When traveling abroad, you may find different gender roles and norms than you’re used to. It’s possible that you may be treated differently or be expected to treat others differently based on your (or their) gender identity.

You can find additional information and resources on our Gender Identity Abroad page.

Racial and Ethnic Minorities Abroad

Students of different ethnic and racial backgrounds may encounter unique challenges transitioning from life here in the United States to life as a student living abroad, including but not limited to access to personal care products and services.

You can prepare yourself for the situations you may experience by researching the ethnic composition of your host country and exploring its history of racial and ethnic relations. We encourage students to start that research on our Racial and Ethnic Minority Students page.
