The Library:

A perfect place to catch up on work, group study or revise for those end of year exams. With five floors of study space  tailored to your subjects like arts and humanities this is one to become familiar with throughout your time at Reading. The  friendly library staff are keen to help students navigate the bookshelves and there is also a cosy cafe for when you need a break from those assignments.

Bagel Man (a.k.a Cereal Works):

If you are running late to class and need a quick bite. With over a range of fillings these scrummy bagels are sure to put a smile on your face. The staff are friendly and are dedicated to keeping their customers  happy from taking your order ,to asking how your weekend has been and even suggesting ideas on what to go for when deciding on your look for summer ball. This guy is notorious on campus  so be sure to go and grab a bagel.

A cool bar located within Wessex’s Halls . It has fabolous range of drinks at cheap prices. There’s even a mini cinema which is great for a film night with friends or a cosy night in. Maybe even a potential spot for a first date ?
