Student Residence Agreement Reading


While each student is equipped with a new mattress protection on arrival, you must provide your own sheets. If you would like to purchase a packet of beds before check-in, please send an email to the hotel administrator whose contact details are listed on the website. Be aware of your expectations for responsible drinking in residence. McMaster University is committed to the health, safety and well-being of students, staff and guests. The mcMaster University Alcohol Policy aims to ensure responsible use of alcoholic beverages on campus or at sanctioned university events. Welcome Week is an exciting time at McMaster, we want to offer our first year students the best reception in their new home. In order to ensure the safety and security of welcome weekly events, we have regulations in place to ensure the safety and security of these events. You cannot take a break from paying your contract if you will be away from your room for a short period of time. If you feel that you do not need your accommodation for a significant portion of the term of the contract, please contact accommodationonline@reading.ac.uk to see if you are able to agree on a shorter period of time before accepting your contract. We will generally not be able to change a contract after you have entered into it. For many students, this is the first time they have already signed a hosting contract or contract of any kind, so navigation under the terms of the student residency agreement may be an unknown area.

The residence is a place that promotes a safe and peaceful environment, which supports the academic success of the students as well as their personal and social development. Our goal is to ensure that it is inclusive, responsible and respectful. Your in-room contract is a legally binding contract with the university to take up residence until a certain time, which is why you are expected to pay for your accommodation until the end of your contract. There is no parking at Loddon House or Regis Park Road for students except for drop-offs and pick-ups. Full-time students with a valid student card of 18 years of age or older can stay at Loddon House.
