Airport Meet and Greet

Page last updated 18/02/2021

Our Meet and Greet service will aim to make your arrival and onward journey to Leeds as smooth as possible. 

If you need to self-isolate upon your arrival in the UK, we can meet you at your arrival airport and provide free transportation to your accommodation. Please read the information below carefully before making your travel arrangements. 

London heathrow international airport

We have arranged for one coach from London Heathrow to Leeds on the below date:

  • 23 February 

We will accommodate all students arriving on each date, so the coach will wait until all students have arrived and cleared UK Customs and Immigration before departing for Leeds. We encourage you to book a flight which arrives earlier in the day, as the coach journey to Leeds will take approximately 4 hours. The coach will drop you off directly at your University accommodation. We can also accommodate drop-offs to private addresses in the Leeds area. 

After this date we will not be able to organise transport from Heathrow. However, we can arrange to meet you at Leeds coach or train station, and can book a free taxi to your accommodation on any date. 

Manchester International Airport and Leeds Bradford International Airport

We will be offering free transport directly from Manchester airport and FREE taxis from Leeds Bradford airport to your accommodation on any date.
