Airport Meet and Greet

Airport Meet and Greet

The airport meet and greet service for September 2022 arrivals will take place from September 13th - 15th. 

This service is for new students arriving in Newcastle for the first time. We will transport you to your accommodation, or a drop off location close to your accommodation (depending on vehicular access available) free of charge. Please ensure that you are able to transport all of your luggage yourself without the use of a trolley/assistance from others as you may have a short walk to your accommodation from the drop off point.    


The airport meet and greet booking service is now closed. 

If you arrive on the 13th, 14th or 15th please come to our Welcome Desk. If we are on site, we will assist you to get to your accommodation as soon as possible.  

If you arrive outside of these dates or if the team isn't at the Welcome desk you will have to make your own arrangements to travel to your accommodation. Please see our Travelling to Newcastle and your accommodation page for information on the best way to travel to your accommodation and see below for information on arriving outside of office hours.

UK Border Control have detailed guidance on how to prepare for the UK border. Please look at this guidance before arrival to make your arrival into the UK as smooth as possible. You should also familiarise yourself with the arrival requirements before arriving in the UK.

Arriving outside of operating times, or those not requesting assistance

You will have to make your own way to your accommodation. Details of the best way to do this are on our Travelling to Newcastle page.

If you have any questions regarding the airport meet & greet service please email A member of our team will be happy to assist.
