Anyone got experience of this university, good or bad?

DC loved it on a recent open day. What halls would people recommend? We were only shown Wessex and Bridges.

I was in the old Childs Hall, but a friend of mine (the lovely WhatWouldLeslieKnopeDo) was in the new Childs Hall and loved it.

I liked Reading, and it's easy to get to lots of places, good transport links etc. Usual student town, but I'd avoid the Oxford Road at night. I lived just off it and a friend still does and it's not great.

Reading on the whole I really liked though.

DC is there and really happy. Lovely campus, close to town, good teaching and pastoral support is great.

Loved it there - stayed in the old Bridges Hall and the new one is a definite improvement. Fantastic sprawling campus, easy to get everywhere as transport links are great. One of the best decisions I ever made.

My DD has just finished her first year. She loves it - can't wait to go back after the summer break. She stayed in Mackinder Halls which are located close to everything. What is your DC hoping to study?

My DD has just finished her second year at Reading. She was in Wessex halls during her first year and loved it. It has a reputation of being a party halls though which suited her! There is a bar at Wessex which she still uses and is still involved with the socials they hold.
