All students, whether living in University or privately rented accommodation, are part of the local community. The University takes pride in the value that our students bring to Reading but also recognises the challenge of integrating students with the wider population. We work closely with local authorities, including Reading Borough Council, Wokingham Borough Council and local police teams, to put in place a range of measures to help students settle into local neighbourhoods.
