Private and rented accommodation
There's lots to consider when living off-campus, see guidance below and read our private accommodation guide.
Firstly, your new neighbourhood will be made up of people with different lifestyles, so it's important to be a considerate neighbour. Then there are things you'll need to know such as when your bins are collected, how to recycle and what your responsibilities are, plus information on parking in the community, and how to get around Reading by bus and bicycle.
There's lots of support is available to you off-campus from your local police and council.
You also have access to all campus facilities and services in the same way our on-campus students do.
