When you want to be in the heart of it all, but enjoying your own stylish space, Central Studios Reading certainly delivers.
If you like your distractions close by, the Oracle shopping centre, and endless riverside bars and restaurants, are just around the corner. The short bus to the University of Reading runs 24/7 and stops quite literally on the doorstop if you don’t fancy walking or cycling, plus the station nearby can have you in central London in around half an hour.
Each studio is decked out with a small double bed, storage aplenty, study zone, snazzy en-suite shower room and the smartest of kitchen areas, complete with breakfast bar. Studios are a great choice if sharing as a couple, with prices per room rather than per person. When you feel like hanging out with friends, or making new ones, head to the huge social space with its TV, comfy sofas and table football! Plus, when all you want to do is be outside, you can take in the city views from our two roof terraces .

We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us
We don’t like it here, we LOVE it! Close to everything, modern, with a good layout and nice furniture. You can make really good friends with your neighbours and as a couple we're very happy.Beatriz, Postgraduate
I would say I love living at Central Studios because you have your own space but can still socialise within the building. Plus, the rooms have everything you need.Natasha, 2nd year
The location here is really great and getting around locally is really easy. I like all the people living and working here – it’s such a great environment!Mitch, PHD student
