Reading has excellent transport links, and we encourage students to explore these options before bringing a car to campus. We are keen to minimise our impact on the on the local and global environment, and as such we have a number of schemes in place to help students and staff manage their environmental impact.
The University offers free cycle skills training to students of all levels of ability, and students can get their bikes repaired for free at the University, paying only for the cost of any parts required. Reading University Students’ Union’s ‘Unicycle’ bike hire scheme allows students to rent a bicycle by the term or year, and the University sometimes hosts second-hand bike sales.
