Reading itself has a diverse range of retail and entertainment facilities. The Oracle Centre, set by the river around a mile from campus, features shops, bars and restaurants and a large multiplex cinema, while the town's popular nightlife includes everything from global music to the theatre. Our local amenities include the concert hall, traditional and outdoor theatres and the Madejski Stadium, home to Reading Football Club and the London Irish rugby team. Reading also has a vibrant live music scene and hosts the world famous rock festival. With so much going on, you are guaranteed a great time. Reading station is just 30 minutes by train to central London – close enough but not too close!
We are based in the heart of the UK’s ‘silicon valley’ or ‘M4 corridor’. As a result, we have built strong working relationships with companies. This means that we are able to host a variety of events where business and industry leaders can share knowledge and give insight to our students. This creates an abundance of opportunities for students to network, gain work experience and build relationships with local companies. As a result, you are presented with the very best opportunities to build your personal profile with these organisations.
At Reading we pride ourselves on being a residential university. The majority of our undergraduates as well as many postgraduates live in halls of residence, which provide over 4,000 rooms. All halls are located on or within walking distance of campus and close to local bus routes and facilities. Each hall is a vibrant community offering you a safe and inclusive environment in which to study and relax. Halls vary in style and size so you can choose between a wide range of study, domestic and social facilities. For more information on how to apply for halls of residence (insert link here).
We recognise the pressures all students face and we want you to gain as much as you can from your time at university. Personal support and career guidance is embedded within all of our degree programmes.
At every step of the way we have a team of people on hand to provide help and advice, whether that be academically speaking, social or domestic.
To ensure you gain as much as you can from your time at university you will receive dedicated support throughout your studies, starting the moment you apply.
Freshers' week at the start of term features a wide range of welcome events, designed to familiarise you with Reading and everything university life has to offer.
Upon enrolment you will be assigned an academic tutor who will be there to offer you ongoing academic advice and support your personal and professional development. Our full-time programme team are always on hand to provide additional support.
For those who want to test their entrepreneurial and applied skills, there are many University wide, national and international competitions that students have the opportunity to get involved with. Such as IDEAFEST, University Business Challenge, Henley Business Challenge and the Cornell International Real Estate Competition to name a few.
