University of Reading Freshers 2019 Watch
More about the University of Reading
haha omg i was the same!! now i kinda know what’s going on, but i think there are 2 wristbands. One for the individual halls, and then one for the students union. So confusing isn’t it smh 🤦*♀️🤦*♀️
I hope your all excited for freshers, not long now!
I would recommend getting the union wristband as it is the university endorsed band. If you are worried about what you’re flat mates may get then I would recommend using the halls Facebook pages to find you’re flat mates. This way you can see what they are going for.
One thing I would say is don’t panic about wristbands, they aren’t the be all or end all of your freshers experience. You will have a great freshers regardless!
Let me know if you have any other questions,

Can anyone link me to the flat mate group on Facebook? I’m in one but it seems empty? Nobody’s posted anything?
I am not not sure which group is the best to join, but if you join as many of the University of Reading 2019/2020 freshers pages on Facebook I am sure that you will find a relevant page. I have just searched and found at least 4 pages.
Hopefully once accepted you will find some flatmates but not everybody joins these pages. Around 60% of my flatmates were in one of these groups.
I hope that this helps! If I can help any other way please let me know.

I wonder if you have contacted the accommodation office as they should be able to offer you the best advice about next steps. You can reach them at: [email protected] k
Or 0118 378 4203
You could try private housing/halls as a possible solution should you not have any luck with university halls. These would be my best bets but I should contact the accommodation team for the most up-to-date advice.

Does anyone know someone who wants to be released from their tenancy? I've been emailed recently saying that all halls are full and I literally have no clue what to do about it as the uni is just too far to commute everday.
