Tasty places near campus with a student discount

Estimated reading time: 6 minutes

As a student, there are many offers out there to help you reduce your spending. Of course, you’ve got your online apps like UNiDAYS and Student Beans, but not all of them are as helpful when you’re trying to grab a quick bite nearby. Thus, this article aims to help you get the best deals out of the restaurants near LSE campus.

Wasabi

Nearest locations: 

  • Kingsway (19 Kingsway, London, WC2B 6UN)
  • Chancery Lane (14 – 18 Holborn, London, EC1N 2LE)
  • High Holborn (116 High Holborn, London, WC1V 6RD)

*Note that out of these three, only Wasabi High Holborn is open over the weekends.

Wasabi is an iconic lunch destination for LSE students. They serve up tasty Japanese curry dishes with sushi sets at a student-friendly budget. They also offer a student discount that not many people know about: simply ask for a student discount at the counter and show your LSE ID to get 10% off! Another small tip is to ask for your food to be take-away, as they may impose some charges for certain products you eat in.

T4

Nearest locations: 

  • Strand (WC2R 1HH)
  • Brunswick (WC1N 1AE)

T4 is a popular boba chain with locations all across the UK. With a wide selection of teas available, from milk tea to fruit teas, it’s a popular bubble tea brand for students. Also, T4 offers a student discount if you show your LSE student ID card, so keep it handy when you visit!

The Alley

Nearest location: 

  • Holborn (Unit 3, 272 High Holborn, London WC1V 7EY)

Similar to T4, THE ALLEY is another well-known bubble tea brand. Unlike T4, The Alley doesn’t publicly announce their student discount, and you’ll only know through word-of-mouth (that’s how I found out!). Just like the other places, asking for a student discount at the counter should work.

At the end of the day, you should ask all restaurants and shops to see if they have student discounts. It doesn’t hurt, plus, it’s a good surprise when you pay the bill!
