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 willn be available to you. As part of your online application you can indicate your preferred type of accommodation, and this information will be used by Reading to try and reserve suitable accommodation for Erasmus and Study Abroad students.
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 period 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 process. A £250 refundable deposit will need to be paid upon acceptance of your place in hall.
If you are considering living outside Reading you must consult the Erasmus & Study Abroad office before committing to do so.
