LSE first opened its doors in 1895, with classrooms in two rented rooms off the Strand, teaching 200 students. Today, we have 11,000 students from 160 countries on a constantly evolving campus.
We started with a radical vision to address major social challenges and a commitment to equality and diversity. We remain true to our founding ethos and are still engaged with the most important policy issues of the day.
