The University of Reading is ranked as one of the UK’s 20 most research-intensive universities and as one of the top 200 universities in the world. We enjoy a world-class reputation for teaching, research and enterprise. Established as an extension college of Christ Church, Oxford in 1892, we received a Royal Charter in 1926, the only university to do so between the two world wars.
Important achievements include being the first university to win the Queen’s Award for Export Achievement (1989) and receiving the Queen’s Anniversary Prize for Higher Education three times (1998, 2006 and 2009).
Whilst every effort is made to ensure that these university semester holiday dates are accurate, there are occasions when circumstances beyond our control may result in changes.
Reading University Term Dates
Please note that some universities have decided to adopt slightly different half term and holiday dates to those shown here and it is therefore advisable to contact the individual school to confirm their dates.
Reading itself offers some of the best retail and entertainment experiences in the Thames Valley. The Oracle Centre features over 80 shops, 28 bars and restaurants and a 10-screen multiplex. Its lively waterside setting is ideal for relaxing, but there are many more meeting places close by.
Other local amenities include the Concert Hall, outdoor theatre and the Madejski Stadium, home to Championship football and the London Irish rugby team.
Our sponsored links on each page also list events and discounts on school holiday ideas and half term events in England, Wales and Scotland.
