Location and facilities
We’re part of the University of Reading’s Whiteknights Campus, which has been recognised as one of Britain's top green spaces for nine years in a row.

Henley Business School has a library, exclusively for Henley students, as well as the newly refurbished central university library. Our International Capital Markets Association (ICMA) Centre has three dealing rooms with 100 trading simulation terminals supported by Refinitiv Eikon and Bloomberg. These rooms are an integral part of our programmes, as they give our students the chance to put theory into practice.

Set in the bustling town of Reading, there is a wide variety of retail outlets and entertainment facilities. Reading also has great transport links, as buses run 24-hours a day from the campus to the town centre, whilst you can get to London Paddington in 30 mins from Reading Railway Station.

If you would like to enjoy the countryside then there are plenty of attractive riverside towns and villages to discover along the beautiful Thames Valley, as well as country walks in the Chiltern Hills.
