    You won't get allocated your first choice accommodation if you forgot to book your accommodation earlier. You will be in the same situation as people who got accepted to Reading via their insurance choice or who got in through clearing. Applications for accommodation open in a couple of days time I think.

    Hi Jordan,

    If you’re still looking for accommodation you might want to check out Central Studios Reading.

    We’re a student accommodation building in Reading town centre offering studio apartments for applicants – you would have your own kitchenette, living area and bathroom.

    Our students are all very sociable and we always hold social events as well (you can see these on our Facebook (www.facebook.com/CentralStudiosReading), so you would get the feeling of Uni halls but with more private space!

    If you’re interested, check out our site:www.freshstudentliving.co.uk/reading

    Or just drop us an email: [email protected] uk

    We would be happy to help you find a place in Reading

    Hi,

    Congratulations on your grades!
    If you are still looking for accommodation in halls at the university then I would email the university. Those who apply for accommodation after clearing will get a separate email and as you didn't go though clearing you are unlikely to get this email with the accommodation link on it.

    I can't guarantee that you will get a room but the accommodation team will be able to help you more. Just email or call them and explain the situation to them.

    I hope this helped,

    Hi fatmata.during
    Congratulations on getting into Reading

    It really does depend on what you are looking for?
    - Ensuite or shared bathroom
    - Catered or self catered
    - The course you are studying (for walking distance)
    - How many people you want to live with
    - Directly on campus or adjacent from it.

    Unfortunately, a place in halls cannot be guaranteed for those that chose Reading as their insurance choice (or went through clearing/adjustments); therefore it is strongly recommended to express an interest as quickly as you can - Please check your e-mail carefully regarding halls as this may vary from applicant to applicant.

    Those struggling to get into Halls of Residence at the University of this present time should look at Private Halls of Residents that are external from the university these include:

    Unite Students - www.unite-students.com
    Fresh Student Living - www.freshstudentliving.co.uk
    Fawley Bridge - www.fawleybridgestudents.com

    Please get in touch if you have any further questions

    I thought it may be useful to know that I did just call reading and the only accommodation left is catered halls, with wash basin or without at Wantage, Windsor & St Patricks hall sadly. From what they told me.

    It's approx. 10-15 minutes on the bus and 25 minutes walk
    The perk of being somewhere like Queens Court is you are right in the hub of the nightlife (5 minute walk to all the major bars and clubs)

    Hi Waywardwriter & Zayn.

    Congrats on the grades!

    Hope you dont mind me jumping in

We’re a student accommodation building in Reading town centre offering all inclusive studio apartments for students – you would have your own kitchenette, living area and en suite bathroom. So walking home after a night out is super easy and the uni bus is on the doorstep!

    Our students are all very sociable and we always hold social events as well (you can see these on our Facebook (www.facebook.com/CentralStudiosReading), so you would get the feeling of Uni halls but with more private space!
