Self-guided campus tours
Due to current government advice regarding the coronavirus pandemic, we are not currently running our self-guided campus tours. You can register your interest in our on-campus tours and we will be in touch as soon as we are able to welcome you back to our campuses.
Undergraduate Open Days
Explore our campuses, chat to staff and students, and see if Reading is the right university for you.

We host a wide range of postgraduate events throughout the year, including visit afternoons and subject-specific activities.

Activities for schools
We host a whole calendar of events and activities both at the University and as part of our outreach programme.
Meet us in your country
We regularly visit cities throughout the world to take part in exhibitions, meet with partner institutions, and give talks on studying at the University.
Visit our meet us in your country page to find out more.
After visiting several Open Days, Reading was the only place I could really see myself living and studying. The campus has a really friendly atmosphere and its location is ideal.
Meet us in the UK
University staff and students attend higher education events all over the UK – as well as all over the world – so, there's a good chance we will be at an event near you soon.
Please see our meet us in your area timetable (PDF- 99KB) for details of the UCAS events we will be attending in 2020.
Maps and directions
The University is well connected by rail and road, and our two main campuses are very close to Reading town centre.

Undergraduate Visit Days
If you have applied to the University of Reading and received an offer for a non-interview undergraduate course, you will be invited to attend a Visit Day. Undergraduate Visit Days are subject-specific and the majority are held in February and March.
