As a Real Estate student at Henley Business School, I am privileged to have state-of-the-art facilities at my disposal to experience. During the welcome week, freshers have already been encouraged to send an application as an intern at Savills! The Student Union and Clubs/Societies are easy to navigate and are welcoming; there are so many choices of clubs for everyone!

Perfect sized uni meaning it's not too overwhelming (especially important when this is your first time living away from home). Campus is beautiful with lots of green space and buildings are an ideal distance apart. Very warm community with plenty of opportunities for getting involved with uni activities.

The facilities are great, i just wish they had a pool! But other then that, everywhere is always so clean and tidy and the attention to detail is always there

UOR has a wealth of amenities and services that make it a welcoming and supportive place to study. The library and other study spaces are large and often open 24 hours to make room for all students to work and there are a range of places to eat and socialise. Moreover, it is one of the greenest campuses in the UK which makes the walks to 9am lectures that little but easier.

UoR offers a lot of services and more than enough support, especially for placements and internships. As an able international POC student, i have felt that most of my needs have been met. The distribution of students in my course was mainly white people and very few POCs. That goes for lecturers as well. The library had a quiet zone that I am very thankful for. The wifi is good and the seatings are abundant. The structures for a few modules that I took were ridiculously oversaturated with content. And some modules were assessed in a way that I thought was not appropriate with the teaching methods. But overall it has been okay. ** Take note that I enrolled when covid just started so a lot of my classes were online and it was very very hectic at the time, for everyone.

I'm an international student for context. Good place to study, very environmentally conscious which is a green flag. Campus is quite nice, got a Co-op and a mini Asian supermarket which is always good. Cant say much about the Careers dep, since I never really reached out, but they are definitely always happy to help. Can't complain much, the staff I've met have been very kind and friendly. Theres a small muslim centre that is meant to be a prayer house? Quite nice, could be bigger but cant complain. They do try to be as inclusive as possible, again, green flag, though this might not be the case course-wise, most buildings are wheelchair friendly. Overall, pretty good.

Reading Uni is located in a brilliant area. The careers team is super helpful when it comes to assistance in finding placements and postgrad roles. There are many modules that you can choose from on any degree and many module options are multi-disaplinary which is great for people not wholly decided on what to do after their degree.

Overall it's a nice campus, I appreciate how much outdoor space and greenery there is. The interenet connection is very patchy though, no matter where you are. The library is always completely full, it's difficult to ever get a spot there even when it's quiet, I just don't really think it seems big enough for the amount of students here. The only other space I'm aware of is the lego building, and it's not very nice in there! Overall it's not an awful place.

The University of Reading truly feels like it puts students first. There’s lots of support regarding future careers and mental health / disability. They were extremely thoughtful through the pandemic and aim to give every student a fair chance. The one thing that’s annoying is the unreliable wifi on campus,especially in the library which seems to be a dead spot. Also, despite the refurbishment of the library, there is hardly ever space to work there unless you book/get there early, which was difficult for a spontaneous worker like me!

I am graduating from the University of Reading and will be sad to go. The library, uni bars and walking around the green campus have been my favourite places and things to do on campus. I have felt supported throughout my time at University by my cheerleading society, the careers team who are brilliant and so helpful and on occasion the student union. I would especially like to mention the International Development department who are all phenomenal. Lastly big shout out for the continuing aim to be a completely sustainable campus !!

A really welcoming and peaceful university, with a beautiful campus and great lecturers too. The facilities are well maintained and everything you need is located on or around campus. The sports park is fit for purpose and there is a range of food options available on campus. The students union puts on really great events, which always goes down well with all students. The library is good but usually busy. There are other student study areas available.

An amazing university with loads of facilities. The staff here is so helpful with your queries. University holds so many events/seminars which are fun, interesting and really beneficial for us. Loads of clubs and societies are there which are active and hold multiple events throughout the terms. The campus is huge, easy to walk around, incredibly green with so many scenic views (has a LAKE!) and bicycle friendly (with bicycle stands throughout the campus).

The campus is amazing, with everything you need all in one place! The student accommodation is safe and clean and the grounds are also lovely especially in summer! The facilities are great and it is easy to find your way around campus with all the signs and even asking people where to go. Additionally, the opportunities you receive are great with emails sent to you daily. It really is a great university to attend.

The campus is gorgeous, the lecturers are super helpful, the facilities are amazing there’s so many study areas and the library is large enough that even during exam periods you can always find somewhere to work. The campus night life is also really good from the twice weekly student union night club events to the near daily events happening in town it’s honestly amazing.

The university campus is a real highlight, mostly everything is within one campus. The students union really tries to help out its students as much as possible and the facilities are modern and up to date

University of Reading always stays on top of new and fun things that could excite their students. I love the way they incorporate everyone’s beliefs and values into the university culture. I feel respected and safe in the uni and don’t have one bad word to say about it.

I have completed both a 3 year undergrad in BioMed and a 2 year masters in Physician Associate studies at UoR. I have loved my 5 years here, with a campus including nearly everything you need, a busy town with everything else and with great transport connections to London and the rest of England or UK. Fab range of clubs/societies, good gym with lots of different classes. New library has a great cafe with lots of study space - some for groups and some private and silent areas for when you need to get an assignment done. I love how green the campus is in spring/summer, I regularly walk around the lake/Harris gardens/woodland areas. Helpful staff for math/statistics help and for careers/cv writing. Would recommend Reading particularly for science courses, I have worked in the original Biomed Hopkins lab and now the shiny new labs. All lectures are passionate about their research which provides interesting teaching and opportunities for dissertation, masters or PhD research!

One of the best place for international students to get familiar with studies and other curricular activities. The natural beauty of the premises will stay alive the students with the busy routine. Highly recommended.

I am a post grad student from the university of Reading. I believe the facilities in the university are top notch and has an amazing vide. But as a post grad student, there isn’t much to do around here since most of the student union and clubs are filled with undergrads .

It is a good university however food on campus could be better. All the cafes and shops sell the same brand of sandwhiches and snacks which are all expensive. There is one co op but all the lunch items are normally sold out if you dont get there in the morning. The library is really good and modern however (especially towards the end of term) finding a seat can be impossible. Again you need to arrive before 10am if you want a geoup work table. Other than this it is a great uni.

There is a sense of community being a campus uni, but it feels as though the university does not have its students best interests in heart and cares about profit more. The students union has a lot of passionate staff and are planning on making big changes, so they understand the areas they need to improve on.

The University of Reading is extremely diverse in what makes it so great. So many different people, beautiful campus(especially in the winter which is a bit odd,) clubs and societies are really engaging and best of all, the student union! Most of the professors are really engaging and exciting("exciting" varying on your course of study as you can probably imagine.) 10/10 university

I picked this university due to the size of the campus and how easy it was to get around. It’s still fairly big but also small enough where you won’t get lost. It has many green spaces and during summer it’s really nice to work outside. The library is quite small and get extremely full during the week so sometimes it’s hard to find a spot to study

the campus is beautiful and has a homely feel with lots of wildlife that is very calming ,however, i found that the nightlife was lacking and found it got boring and depressing at times. the only shop on campus is co-op which is expensive. if your flatmates aren't great it can be difficult to meet other people, my lectures made no effort in getting students to get to know each other so i found it difficult to meet new people in my course. overall i don't find it a very sociable/fun uni.
