Hi,

As a quick intro, I’ll be a new post-grad Masters student starting in Sept 2023. I am seeking en-suite accommodation on Campus in Halls, but it appears all rooms on Campus have gone. Is there anyone online who already has a room in Halls and is looking to cancel their contract for their room?

Thanks,
Bhavika

I did enquire about a cancellation list, but was told there wasn’t one unfortunately.

I called the Accommodation Office on Campus and they confirmed all the en-suite rooms were taken.

Hey Bhavika @smiley4588!

Sorry to hear that the en-suites are all full.
Have you tried joining the University of Reading Freshers 2023-24 group on Facebook and asking on there? I know a lot of people talk about accommodation changes on there so this may help the search! It may also be worth checking back with the accommodation team every so often in case someone cancels their contract.

Hope this helps & you find the room you want soon!

Hey @forcedtomakeaunt

Sorry you're in a stressful situation!

I would suggest getting in touch with our accommodation team on 0118 200 5011 as soon as you can - they will be able to advise you of any options available on campus that are left, and also give you advice on other options you may have off-campus if necessary.

There's also a really helpful Housing page on the students union website, which may be helpful to you, which has information about other housing options for students.

Hope this helps and you get it sorted soon! Let us know if there's anything else we can help with.

Hi!
I'm trying to find a replacement tenant for my en suite accommodation, I'm not in campus halls but I am walking distance from the white knights campus (about 10-15 minutes). So I was wondering if you are still looking for a place, I want to move out asap :smile:
