Your home at university is a place to live, to study, to meet friends, to socialise and –for many students – to discover independence for the first time.

Moving into university accommodation is an ideal way to experience life away from your family and to discover self-sufficiency, while also discovering life as part of the university community.

The University of Reading Malaysia (UoRM) works with EduCity Student Village and Core Home Management, to provide comfortable and convenient accommodation for all students.

If you choose to study at the University of Reading Malaysia, you will be given priority for accommodation at the EduCity Student Village.
