Our campuses

Whiteknights Campus is the largest campus of Reading and includes Whiteknights Lake, conservation meadows and woodlands as well as most of the University's departments. The main University library, in the middle of the campus, holds nearly a million books and subscribes to around 4,000 periodicals. It also has a lake, which is home to many Mandarin Ducks, Cormorants, Herons and a small group of Cayuga ducks. The Whiteknights campus was voted one of the best green spaces in the United Kingdom for the seventh year running in the 2017 Green Flag People's Choice awards. Here are some amenities near our campus.

The smaller London Road Campus is the original university site and is closer to the town centre of Reading. The London Road site is home to The Institute of Education - a major provider of teacher training in the UK. The Institute moved to its new home in January 2012 after the campus was refurbished at a cost of £30 million. The London Road site also plays host to the University graduation ceremonies twice a year, in the Great Hall. Here are some amenities near our campus.

Greenlands is a country house situated by the River Thames in Buckinghamshire, just outside Henley-on-Thames. Built in the nineteenth century, it now forms the core of Greenlands Campus of the University of Reading, and is used by their Henley Business School as the base for its MBA and corporate learning offerings. Here are some amenities near our campus.
