LSE's oldest student


We're the go-to on campus for all things international affairs. Welcome to our platform.

Our Activity

Our Conversations, Symposiums and Ambassador Series drives debate on campus, not to mention our more eclectic Special Events.

Our Home

We're based in central London: the heart of international policymaking. Learn more about our university and Students' Union.

Our Network

The Grimshaw Club is a platform for conversation and change. Our network extends beyond campus, linking practitioners, students and academics.

Welcome to the Grimshaw Club.

Established in 1923, Grimshaw has been the beating heart of international affairs at the London School of Economics for nearly one hundred years.

We seek to blend tradition with cutting-edge ideas and innovation. Throughout the academic year, we organise engaging academic and social events for our members.

We're also one of the few LSE societies to send student delegations abroad to meet with politicians, diplomats and civil society leaders, venturing behind the news headlines.


The Grimshaw Club Committee is run by a group of dedicated students from international backgrounds. Hover over the images to learn more about each committee member.

Meet our 2018/19 committee.
