London Heathrow Airport
Airport Meet and Greet Service
Our friendly University Welcome Team will collect you from the airport and take you on a coach to the University of Birmingham free of charge. University Welcome representatives will be present at London Heathrow (LHR) airport from 09:30 - 16:30 on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th September. We regret that we are unable to offer an airport collection service on other days, or from alternative airports. If you are unable to use our service please visit http://www.birmingham.ac.uk/welcome/international/travel.aspx for travel guidance.
Who is the Service for?
This service is available for new students coming to study at the University of Birmingham in September. If you are bringing relatives who will not be students at the University please visit our travel guidance page for alternative travel arrangements.
Booking a Seat
If you would like to use this service you must book a seat in advance; please allow at least 90 minutes for you to go through passport control, customs, collect your baggage and find the Welcome team at the airport. If you change your flight please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so that we are able to amend/cancel your booking.
Please note that students are only allowed to book one seat on the airport collection service.
We reserve the right to amend or cancel bookings if there is not at least 90 minutes between landing and the time of the coach reservation.
You will only be allowed one large piece of baggage and one small piece of hand baggage on the coach. If you have more than this, please make your own arrangements to get these shipped to the UK, or make your own arrangements to travel with your baggage to the University.
How to Find us at the Airport
The University Welcome Team will be wearing yellow t-shirts with ‘University of Birmingham’ printed on them, and they will be holding up a ‘University of Birmingham’ sign. Staff at London Heathrow will be located in Terminal 3 Arrivals near the Terminal 3 ‘meeting point'.
When you arrive at the airport please let a member of the University Welcome team know that you are here. If your flight was delayed we will see if there is a seat available on a later coach. If there are no seats available we will direct you to the National Express Coach Information Point where you can purchase a coach ticket to Birmingham Digbeth Coach Station and then catch a taxi to the University of Birmingham.
How Long Does the coach Take?
The coach from London Heathrow Airport to University takes approximately 3 hours to the University of Birmingham.
Please email email@example.com for the full details of collection after you have booked your ticket.
