Real Estate & Planning Research Hub

About us

The Reading Centre for Real Estate and Planning Research (CREPR) is a major interdisciplinary research centre within the School of Real Estate & Planning. Research has been key to the success of the School, which was established in 1968 and has been identified by the Urban Land Institute as the leading centre for real estate in Europe.

CREPR undertakes all aspects of real estate and planning research, influencing industry practices and policy-making, and leading academic debates within the UK and internationally. It is committed to addressing “real world” issues and welcomes the opportunity to engage and work with research users and partners across all sectors. If you would like to discuss a specific research idea with us, please contact Dr Ruth Pugh in the first instance.
