Thinking of applying to the University of Reading?
Our Undergraduate open day will give you the opportunity to look around the University and its facilities as well as the chance to find out more about the courses you are interested in.
Between 09.30am and 3.00pm, academic staff from the university and current students will be on hand to talk to. The ICMA Centre will be running three taster sessions in the morning, so please make your way direct to buildings 71 and 117 at your chosen time, as shown on campus map.
In addition there will be a series of general information talks on accommodation, careers, student finance, student life, the student union, studying abroad, sport and music at Reading and support services.
The details for these talks will be available nearer to the time.
In order to gauge the number of visitors coming along to our taster morning, we would ask you to please complete the registration, available here.
Making the most of Open Day:
Visitors to our Open Days are surprised at how much there is to see and do. We are conscious that you might like to take some time to plan your day so we have put together a guide so that you can make plans before you arrive.
How to make the most of Open Days

Alternatively, you can make your own way by following the signage to pick up a guided tour of a halls of residence. We show a variety of halls ranging from self-catered, en suite to fully catered and shared facilities.
