When are they?
Our next Open Days will take place on:

Open day activities will take place on our beautiful parkland Whiteknights campus and the historic London Road campus.
What should I expect?
Between 09:30 and 15:00, academic staff and students will be on hand for you to talk to, and departments will be running their own activities.
There will also be a series of general information talks on accommodation, careers, student finance, student life, students' union, study abroad, sport, music and support services. To get a feel for what happens on the day please see our 2013 Open Day storify as well as the sample programmes below:

How can I register to come along?
In order for us to gauge the number of visitors coming along to the Open Day. Registration will open a month before the event.
If you have a disability we can help make arrangements for you to visit the University on an Open Day. You are also welcome to arrange a visit to the Disability Office at any time.
How can I make the most of my Open Day?
Visitors to our Open Days are surprised at how much there is to see and do. We are conscious that you might like to take some time to plan your day so we have put together a guide to help you make plans before you arrive.
If you have a disability or disabling condition and would like to come along to Open Day or a campus tour, it would be helpful if you could contact the Disability Office in the first instance, to discuss your requirements and to ensure that Reading will be a suitable place for you to study.
At our University-wide Open Days in June, September and October there will be the opportunity to meet our Disability Officers, in confidence, to discuss your particular needs. We also provide a 'roving' mobility bus to help you get around and a Disability Office stand for general enquiries. You are also welcome to join one of our fortnightly campus tours or take a self-guided tour, if you would prefer.
Can I see any of the University accommodation?
If you are interested in viewing our student accommodation, please ask a student guide to take you there. Alternatively, you can make your own way by following the signage to pick up a guided tour of a halls of residence. We show a variety of halls ranging from self-catered to en suite to fully catered and shared facilities.
There will also be staff available to answer all queries about life in halls in 3sixty of the Students' Union on the Whiteknights campus.
