University of Reading
7.8 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 37 ratings in 2018)
In a few words
"The location is really handy. I can easily walk to town in 30 or 45 minutes and there is a 24-hour bus service that runs from campus to town. The accommodation was good value for money considering I was down south and there are plenty of areas to study and plenty of computers to use across campus."
