Mackinder is one of the newest halls of residence on campus, having only been built in 2010. This means that not only is it extremely modern but it is also a lovely atmosphere to live around! With Mackinder having 563 residents and Dunsden having 130, you are sure to make some friends for life.
Mackinder and Dunsden are also a part of Park Group Halls, which includes Windsor, Greenow & McCombie, Stenton and Childs. Being part of Park Group also means we have access to Park Bar, Park Eat, Park Play and also a social building (laundry room, post boxes and bike sheds). If you are after a meet up with friends or even a space for a revision session, Mackinder is right in the hot spot.
Not only this but Mackinder is on campus, meaning lectures are always a short walk away. Alternatively, if it is a break from university that you are after, bus stops are located locally so you can go and enjoy Reading town centre.
