Poor sound insulation. You can hear exactly every step from above. Congratulations to you if he or she is an active walker who sleeps late night and wakes up in the early morning. You can barely sleep and concentrate on work because the walking sound can wake you up in awkward hours. Terrible sleeping and living experience. WiFi and internet service are not available few days this month. The common room and study room are quite small when comparing to some of the LSE postgraduate halls. Also, free printing service is not provided. The only good thing is the location. It's near the Spitalfield Market, 24-hour supermarket, Liverpool Street and Algate East stations, and Shoreditch. The transportation network is good.

Terrible experience. WiFi is constantly broken and no intention of hall management to fix it. Warm water is off for days. Laundry room is more broken than fixed. Hall management takes weeks to respond to emails or just ignores it completely.

WORST MANAGEMENT. they do not care about the students. i live on the 5th floor and my lift has been broken for 6 weeks now with no end in sight. all they tell us is "tomorrow tomorrow tomorrow". something as simple as fixing a lightbulb in my room took 3 weeks. making the washroom fan work took 6 weeks. Please do yourself a favor and DO NOT COME HERE. believe me. you will thank me later.

Extremely disappointed with the hall. I chose to live in student housing so I could avoid problems with administration and focus on school, but this has not been the case. The administration does not work at all, does not respond and when they do respond does not offer any solutions. We've had the lift out for 6 weeks, the fans in our bathrooms broken for 8 weeks, an oven that doesn't bake, only broils and smells of burning paint. After repeated conversations with management, we are just given apologies or ignored. Also, you cannot choose which floor or room you are in, so it's quite possible you'll be facing either a construction site or a street with a lot of loud drunk people passing who can see in the windows or into the common interior area where people are talking as they pass through to different blocks. Fire alarms go off quite frequently in the middle of the night or early hours of the morning. Really I would think twice before trying your luck in Lilian Knowles.

Recurring problems with electricity (kitchen appliances don't work in studio) and fire alarms, which the staff are unwilling to fix, regardless of promises made. Rather disappointing, considering this is one of the more expensive LSE halls. Not really a social hall, given that everyone is postgrad, but if you came here to study, that shouldn't be a problem.
