Before you come to Reading
Coming to University for the first time involves lots of new experiences! We've got lots of information available so that you will know what to expect and what you'll need on your first day.
Where you live during your time at University can make all the difference. At Reading, we offer a wide range of catered and self-catered accommodation for both undergraduate and postgraduate students to provide you with a home away from home as part of a supported community.
The University of Reading has two housing providers, University Partnerships Programme (UPP) and Unite Students. Unite Students owns and manages Kendrick Hall located next to the London Road campus and UPP manages the remainder of the halls on, or next to the Whiteknights Campus.
