The Learning Hub is a resource base that primarily supports the work and study of staff and student teachers at the Institute of Education. However:

  • Staff and students from the University of Reading are welcome to visit to view materials held by the Learning Hub, to study or to use our I.T. facilities.  Large groups must contact the Learning Hub in advance to ensure we can accommodate the visit.
  • External visitors are also welcome to view materials held by the Learning Hub but we ask that you contact us to make an appointment for your visit at least one week in advance. Please note that during the University Examination period, from the beginning of April until mid-June, access for external visitors may be restricted.
  • Children are only permitted in the Learning Hub if closely accompanied by an adult at all times.  Visits by school pupils are not permitted during the University Examination Period.
