The health and safety of our customers, as well as that of our staff and students, is of great importance to the University of Reading. Therefore, owing to the exceptional circumstance arising from the COVID-19 pandemic and in line with the Government’s guidelines on social distancing, we have taken the decision to close or reduce a number of our services and facilities until further notice.
Venue Reading offer a wide range of event services and venues at the University of Reading Whiteknights and London Road campuses, with everything from traditional buildings rich in heritage to modern state-of-the-art meeting rooms. We can stage concerts in the magnificent Grade 2 listed Great Hall, and host dinners and functions, product launches, private parties and much more.
We can offer all year round availability with a flexible range of capacities and facilities, including meeting rooms, lecture theatres and exhibition space, along with an extensive range of onsite accommodation from either the all year round Cedars Hotel to the halls of residence available during summer vacation. Beautiful parklands lend themselves to outdoor events such as, teambuilding away days and receptions, or to simply take time out of a busy day and enjoy a walk around The Harris Gardens and the lake.
