With just under 5000 rooms in operation at the University of Reading, we want all of our residents to feel supported and part of the community in their new home. We pride ourselves on our safe, sustainable and diverse campus environment and strive to provide you with a fulfilling experience during your stay with us.
Our ethos is simple: your halls are a place that you can live, learn, belong and grow.
With social spaces spread around the halls, plenty of places to eat and drink on your doorstep and an endless flow of events and activities in halls, there are always ways for you to get involved your halls community.
All halls residents are welcome to our events - no matter where they take place. If you'd like to come along to one of our events, simply visit our What's On page to find out what's coming up.
Whilst living in halls, you'll have access to our social spaces where you can relax and meet with friends outside of your rooms. They are also often where we host most of our events. These are often known as Junior Common Rooms (or JCRs). They are however, open to the residents of the hall. These are our available social spaces:
Each hall is its own Junior Common Room Committee (JCR) which is made up of students who have previously lived in halls. The JCR representatives co-ordinate social activities throughout the year, such as Welcome Week events, formal dinners and hall's sports teams. All residents in hall can join the JCR and become part of the hall community.
Please note there is a fee for joining the JCR and JCRs are managed by RUSU.
