Airport Welcome Service

We'll have teams of student ambassadors at Manchester Airport to welcome you between 11 and 16 September 2018 and to help you with your onward journey. Teams will be dressed in purple University of Manchester branded clothing and in the Arrivals Halls between 7am and 9pm on each day.

Our transport service is for new international and EU students arriving for the first time in Manchester and living in University accommodation. We prioritise students who are travelling alone but we will sometimes have space to take friends and family with us on the coaches. If you're living in private accommodation, we advise you to take a taxi from Manchester Airport to your accommodation.

You can find more advice on making your own way from the airport by:
