Welcome to the University of Reading
Here you will find everything you need to know about joining the University as a new starter or returning to your studies this autumn.
We are looking forward to welcome all new students and those returning to continue their course. This year our official welcome period will run from 20 - 24 September. .Welcome at Reading is all about settling in to student life, finding your way around, meeting fellow students and familiarising yourself with events, support and opportunities available to you in your first few weeks.
We expect all students to attend in person for their studies this coming academic year unless you have been given permission to study remotely. We have adapted our teaching, facilities, and services to comply with UK government advice relating to the COVID-19 pandemic, while providing a safe and supportive learning environment. For the latest information relating to our response to COVID-19, please visit our Student life on campus section and what to expect from your learning experience in 2021.
