For students who have a confirmed place in halls
You are required to provide your own towels and bed linen. If you have applied for accommodation and received an offer for a room, you can order your bedding or kitchen packs online.
Please remember to purchase a pack before you arrive. Alternatively, there are several shops in Reading town centre where you can buy towels and bedding.
In self-catering accommodation, you are responsible for buying and cooking your own food, this includes providing your own cooking utensils. Rather than travelling to the UK with these items, you can purchase a kitchen pack from the University.
A kitchen pack includes essential kitchen items such as plates, cutlery, pots and pans. You can order a kitchen pack online.
The University offers three eating plans that are available for students with both catered and self-catered accommodation. With 13 catering outlets spread across the University, there’s a large selection of food for you to choose from. Visit the University hospitality website to find out about the foods on offer.
