A bit about us

We are continually building our reputation as a university that is helping the world. From our award-winning work on climate change to helping to feed the world, the University of Reading is recognised globally.

Our 240-acre campus is award-winning too, and a short walk from Reading’s vibrant town centre. Central London is only a 25 minute train ride away, which might explain why so many blue-chip companies have chosen to locate here.

Join us and you’ll become part of a diverse and caring community that lives, learns and thrives together with a single aim in common – to build better futures for all of us.
