The main LSHTM building on Keppel Street, London WC1E 7HT. Keppel Street is very short and we are the only building on the street so you won't have trouble finding us.

Please note the following:

  • You are welcome to turn up at any time - we realise that you may have other stuff to do
  • Although this event is aimed at students new to the UK, all students are welcome to attend (but new students only, not partners, children or pets!)

If you have any queries about the International Students Welcome, please email the Student Adviser.
