Airport Service

We will have a team at Manchester Airport to welcome you in September (11-17 September), and to offer you free transportation to your hall of residence on Wednesday 13, Thursday 14 and Friday 15 September.

We offer this service to unaccompanied students who will be living in University accommodation. If you are travelling with family or staying in private accommodation, you will need to arrange your own transport from the airport.

Dates and times of the service

'Meet and greet' teams will be at the airport from Monday, 11 September to Sunday, 17 September, between 8am and 9.30pm on each day.

Transport to University accommodation will be provided free of charge for those students who are living in University halls and are arriving alone on Wednesday 14, Thursday 14 and Friday 15 September. Transport starts at 8.30am and ends at 9.30pm. The service stops at all University accommodation. If you are not sure whether you are living in University accommodation, please check the list of halls on the arrival form.
