The Royals have been tracking the winger for quite some time, and fended off competition from Stoke and Cardiff City to land the England Under-21 international.
"The deal is done and dusted, club spokesman Craig Mortimer told planetfootball. "He has signed a one month deal."
Reading tied up the deal on Friday evening, and Alan Pardew brings Chadwick into his high-flying squad as he pushes for a play-off spot.
Chadwick has fallen a little out of contention at United over the last few months, but his brand of pacey trickery could be a huge addition to The Royals.
Chadwick told the club's official site, that he was delighted to have sealed the move.
"It feels great to be here," said Chadwick. "Reading are doing very well, they are a great club and a big club.
"They have a beautiful stadium and hopefully I can do well.
"I had a few options, but I thought Reading was the best place to come at this time.
Cardiff City had earlier admitted they were out of the chase for the Red Devil, choosing to put their faith behind Jason Bowen.
"The Luke Chadwick thing is on ice," said manager Lennie Lawrence. "Luke is a right winger and Jason has got that role at the moment - and he's been doing well for us."
