Tenancy Reference Request

The University is able to provide tenancy references to students who have stayed in University of Reading accommodation. If you are a letting agent or landlord, please be aware that we are unable to correspond with you directly.

We ask that students submit a Tenancy Reference Request form. Upon submitting this form, your request will be sent to accommodationonline@reading.ac.uk where the Accommodation Office will process your request by checking your student details and financial status.

The completed reference will be sent to your University e-mail address and it is your responsibility to pass this to your Landlord or Letting Agent. Tenancy references are completed once per week so please allow a weeks turnaround time. Due to the checks that must be completed in order to provide a reference, we are unable to accommodate last-minute requests.

Please Note: the University of Reading reserve the right not to provide a reference.

Your tenancy check and reference will provide the following information:

  • Your name
  • Your tenancy address which you have requested a reference for
  • The length of your tenancy
  • The dates of tenancy
  • The weekly rent;

and will answer the following questions:

  • Did the student incur damages charges of £100 or above?
  • Does the student have any accommodation related debt over the deposit amount of £250?

It is the tenant's responsibility to check the details provided in the reference before passing the information over to a third party. If you have any queries relating to the information provided, please contact the Accommodation Office on accommodationonline@reading.ac.uk
