Microsoft Teams image 6

On behalf of the University of Reading, I wish to express our deep sorrow following the death of Her Majesty The Queen.

Her Majesty served the United Kingdom, its overseas territories and nations of the Commonwealth, with grace, humility and dedication throughout her 70-year reign as monarch. Among her many official roles, she was Visitor of the University of Reading.

We extend our condolences to members of the Royal family at this sad time.

As a mark of respect, flags at our campuses have been lowered to half-mast and will remain at half-mast during the period of mourning. Books of Condolence will be opened at all of our campuses, for all members of the University community to sign.

At this moment of great national sadness, I hope you will use this time to seek comfort with your friends and families, as we all remember Her Majesty The Queen in our own way.

Professor Robert Van de Noort
Vice-Chancellor, University of Reading
