THINGS TO CONSIDER CHOOSE YOUR RESIDENCY PERIOD • 40 weeks: You rent your room during term time and the Christmas and Easter vacations. This means you move in just before the start of Welcome Week and move out after the end of the Summer Term. This option is normally preferred by ­undergraduate ­students. • 51 weeks: You rent your room during term time and the Christmas, Easter and Summer vacations. This means you move in just before the start of Welcome Week and move out at the end of the Summer ­Vacation. Postgraduate students often select this option - you are advised to check with your academic department in respect of course dates as to which contract length will be appropriate for you. Note: a limited number of 38-week contracts are also available.

YOUR PREFERRED ROOM TYPE It is a good idea to think about the room type that may suit you best. Consider whether you are happy to share a bathroom, whether it is important for you to be in a modern hall or would you prefer a more traditional style. The following pages should help guide you through your choices.

POSTGRADUATES We have a limited number of rooms available for postgraduate students. See www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-study/ accommodation/university-accommodation/specificrequirements.aspx for more information and details of which halls have designated postgraduate areas.

SINGLE GENDER ACCOMMODATION We have a limited number of areas in halls that are designated as single gender only. See www.reading.ac.uk/ready-to-study/ accommodation/university-accommodation/specificrequirements.aspx for more information and details of which halls offer single gender areas.
