Airport Meet and Greet

Airport Meet and Greet

The Airport 'Meet and Greet' Service will be running at Newcastle Airport 12th-14th September, 2023.

This service is for new students arriving in Newcastle for the first time. We will arrange for a taxi or bus to your accommodation, or a drop-off location nearby, free of charge. Please ensure that you are able to manage all of your luggage yourself as you may have a short walk to your accommodation from the drop-off point.    

If you arrive from the 12th-14th September, please come to our Welcome Desk. If we are on site, we will assist you to get to your accommodation.  

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 'meet and greet' operating times, or those not requesting assistance

You will have to make your own way to your accommodation. Details about how to do this are on our Travelling to Newcastle page.
