If you have a conditional Firm offer, then you must meet the conditions of the offer, for example, achieving the required A level grades, in order for the guarantee to apply.
A place in halls cannot be guaranteed if the University of Reading is your Insurance choice.
The number of rooms available varies from year to year depending on the number of successful applications to the University.

Students holding Insurance offers should explore alternative accommodation arrangements if University accommodation is full. You will be provided with further information and guidance if this situation arises.
