Bookings are now open.

  • This transfer service is free of charge.
  • The transfer bus will depart from Heathrow Terminal 3 (only) at 10.30am (GMT). If you’d like to use this service, you’ll need to book a flight that arrives early morning at Heathrow.
  • You MUST book online in advance using the link below.
  • To make the booking we need all your flight details – only book after you have a confirmed flight.
  • If you arrive at a different terminal, you will need to make your way to the meeting point at Terminal 3.
  • Give yourself at least three hours from the time your flight lands to get to the meeting point at Terminal 3.
  • After you have submitted your booking, you will receive an automatic email confirmation.
  • If cannot arrive in time to take the bus, or arrive on a different day, you will need to travel to your campus independently.
  • You are restricted to two pieces of luggage and one piece of hand luggage. Student travelling with more luggage will need to organise their own transport.
  • Bookings will close on 2 January.
