Campus visits of press and visitors wishing to conduct interviews, film, demonstrate or present petitions

The University is a democratic and open institution. However, it is paramount that we maintain the safety and security of staff, students and visitors and ensure the smooth running of business at all times.

To this end, while people are welcome to access the campus, we ask that we are notified and that permission is sought before campus visits of the press and any visitors wishing to conduct interviews, film, demonstrate or present petitions.

Permission can be obtained by contacting the Press Office on 0118 378 5757 or pressoffice@reading.ac.uk.

A member of the University will manage visits and accompany guests, so that their presence it is not disruptive of University business.

The University campuses are private property and if people are accessing the grounds without prior permission and or unaccompanied, they will be deemed as trespassing and the University Security staff have the right to evict. Normally staff and students will notify security if they are expecting visitors on campus.
