As an international student who’s been living in student accommodations a lot, 79 Silver Street is the best so far. A new modern building, big enough to have everything you need from gym to cinema room and cozy enough to know everyone and feel part of a family who’s looking out for you at anytime. Rooms are spacious with lots of storage. Since I cook all my meals, the kitchen has everything you need (that means separate oven and microwave ;) ) and a huge cupboard to fit everything!! You can be in town in 10mins and in uni in 15mins which makes it a great location. Amazing and quiet neighborhood for those nights where you just want to hide away. Overall, highly pleased with everything it has to offer!! -Melisa

Been here for a month and so sad I had to leave soon! Great support and service by James and Joe, always friendly and there to help when we needed them. The accommodation is fairly new with plenty social space, gym and a mini cinema. It’s great to have friends over for a dinner gathering! Price wise, it’s quite reasonable compare to similar set-up private accommodations. Storage space is a little tricky at times but good for one in a classic studio. Would recommend.

I stayed at 79 Silver Street over Summer and have had a fantastic experience! The rooms are modern, comfortable, and well equipped, with fast wifi and plenty of storage space. Joe and James are very friendly and always spoiling their students with sweet treats and other fun events. This is a lovely extra touch and, in my opinion, makes 79 Silver Street unique. I'd highly recommend this accommodation to any prospective students.

Stayed here for a summer internship. Very spacious studio apartment, great lighting, very clean, good furnishing and ventilation. Would be even better with a table tennis or pool table, but the cinema room is a great facility to have. Highly recommend.

Fantastic accomodation. Clean, modern style rooms. The gym and cinema room are great bonuses. Located at the perfect spot, right next to the Oracle shopping centre and local transport. And I'm loving the mystery mini fridge at the reception, where we are left drinks and snacks sometimes.

By Tomisin On 12th March 21 verified Verified student

I absolutely love this accomodation! I’ve lived in reading for 4-5 years and in that period I’ve lived in various student accommodations. In my humble opinion, this appears to be the best student accomodation in the whole of reading. My room is very spacious and the layout is definitely a contributing factor, the design and decor of the room is just beautiful. It also has a reasonably equipped gym and lovely cinema. The location was definitely well thought out because it is close the university but also close to town which is a plus. Might I add that the staff are also very friendly, helpful and attentive to students needs. I really wish I could rebook but I will be graduating from masters this year! Most certainly will be recommending this to any friend of mine coming to reading for studies.

-The stylish interior design and a clean environment are overwhelming -Reasonably priced accommodation in a good location. Great location with only 2 min walks to the bus stop so it is easy to get to uni and also very close to the town center. -Love having access to the on-site gym especially during winter without even needing to walk to the gym outside. There are plenty of social spaces such as study rooms, party rooms, lounges as well as a cinema -The staffs are fantastic, friendly, and forever helpful. Overall 5 star rating in all aspects! There is nothing I think could be improved as everything is superb as it is! -sabrina

This is an absolute brand new building, with a helpful and caring staff on site for you. The room is huge and bright, with a lot of space for your staff and has everything what you need and even more (your own kitchen with microwave, hob, oven and fridge and nice bathroom). It is also clean and tidy outside with a lovely secure garden with benches to enjoy the weather (however, not THIS weather). Location is also great, just in the city center. I love it here.

79 silver street is a private student accommodation that located in the middle between the town center and the university of Reading. For my experience, this is the best accommodation I've ever seen her in Reading because it has a lot of features for the money paid. It's also located in a quiet area where you can find the proper atmosphere for your life as a student.

I was anxious about moving to Reading because I was unsure of where I would live, until I chanced upon No. 79 Silver Street on the Prestige Student Living website. I was extremely excited to move in to this new building with its beautifully designed and fully furnished studios of all sizes. The staff made the process simple as they were extremely helpful with my booking, as well as my move into the building. Since I've lived here, the building has been kept clean and tidy at all times. The floors are pretty quiet which makes it conducive to study in my room as well. Close to the all the hot spots in Reading, and a few minutes away from the London Road campus, it doesn't get better than this.
