The Large Hadron Electron Collider (LHeC) is a proposed facility which will exploit the new world of energy and intensity offered by the LHC through collisions with a new 60 GeV electron beam. The LHeC opens the possibility for precision studies of the Higgs Boson which in electron-proton collisions is most abundantly produced in the WW channel of e^-p charged current scattering. An LHeC luminosity of up to 10^34cm^-2s^-1 makes this a most interesting mode for studying the Higgs boson, owing also to the rather clean experimental conditions (less complex final state, no-pileup, lower QCD background as compared to the LHC) while the theoretical uncertainties are small. An overview is presented of this opportunity, including a detailed study of the dominant H--> bbar decay channel.
