Reading College is located near the centre of Reading and easily accessible by public transport.
Reading College offers spectacular facilities in a vibrant setting. The Kings Road campus offers a wide range of specialist facilities include creative art workshops, Recording studios, performance spaces, a TV studio, theatre, garage, construction centre and fully-fitted training kitchens.
These are supported by expert tuition from lecturers, and input from businesses, who help shape our courses.
Students have access to industry-standard equipment, be it for creative arts, catering, music, sport, construction or motor vehicle studies. Reading College also has a dedicated radio station, Blast 1386, allowing students to experience running and working in a full-time live radio environment.
Onsite, you can dine in the student-run restaurant, The Kitchen, enjoy hair and beauty treatments at The Salon, work on your fitness in The Gym or purchase goods at The Shop, which is run by our students with learning difficulties and/or disabilities.
You’ll also find plenty of places to socialise and meet new friends, with a modern and well-equipped gym, and a variety of shops, cafes and chill out areas with comfy sofas.
We have been welcoming further education students since 1955, when the campus opened as Reading Technical College. We now provide education to students from the Thames Valley region and beyond, who are attracted by our facilities and location, close to The Oracle shopping centre, The Madejski Stadium and London.
