Welcome to the University of Reading. These webpages contain everything you need to know about your first few weeks at Reading in January 2021.
This year 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 regularly updated information relating to COVID-19, please visit our Student life on campus section.
You can also read the Next Steps email sent to all students starting a new course in January 2021 with instructions and information.
Start of term: Monday 11 January
- Important: There will be a phased start of face-to-face teaching in January, prioritising programmes with practical or placement elements. Your teaching may be online only at first so we can implement the government guidance on staggered return to campus. Find out more about teaching at the start of spring term.
Campus Card collection: Monday 18 to Friday 22 January in the Carrington Building (Ground Floor reception) on Whiteknights Campus from 11am until 1pm and 2pm until 4pm.
- Remember: if you are travelling from outside the UK you can only collect your campus card once you’ve arrived and completed self-isolation per Government guidelines. Make sure you leave enough time to complete this to collect your Campus Card.
