There are two types of accommodation available for you to choose from if when you join our Study Abroad Programme:
A room in a hall of residence on or around our Whiteknights campus
A room in a private house shared with other students
Whilst we are unable to guarantee all students joining our Study Abroad Programme a room in a hall of residence, every effort will be made to house as many students as possible and support will be provided to those who wish to live in a private house.
Upon nomination to study at Reading you will receive an Accommodation Guide brochure as part of the information pack we will send to you which will hopefully give you more detailed information about what kind of accommodation will be available to you. As part of your online application to join our Study Abroad programme you can indicate your preferred type of accommodation, and this information will be used by colleagues at Reading to find a suitable amount of rooms in hall for Erasmus and Study Abroad students. This does not constitute your formal application for a place in hall however.
You will only be able to formally apply for accommodation in hall once you have been formally accepted to join our Study Abroad programme and after the close of the application date to join the Study Abroad programme i.e. normally in July (for October starters) or November (for January starters). Representatives of the University will write to you direct to confirm details about the application process for halls. A £250 refundable deposit will need to be paid upon acceptance of your place in hall, as well as signing a contract.
If you are considering living outside Reading you must consult the Erasmus & Study Abroad office before committing to do so.
