Meet and greet

With you every step of the way

To get your studies off to the best possible start, we can meet you at the airport and take you to your accommodation - for free.


Important information - please read before you book the service

The University closes for the Christmas break on Thursday 21 December and does not re-open until Tuesday 2 January. If you intend to travel in this period we will be unable to organise the service for you. If you intend to arrive on Tuesday 2 January 2018 you must have booked this service by the 4.00pm UK time on Tuesday 19 December 2017 so we are able to organise the service for you.

If you would like to make use of our meet and greet service, you must have arranged accommodation before you arrive.

If you are staying in University accommodation, you need to apply well in advance of arriving. If you want to be dropped off at housing in the private sector or temporary accommodation in a local hotel or bed and breakfast, we will need the address.
More about accommodation

Our meet and greet service is free to all new international students arriving at nearby Durham Tees Valley Airport and Newcastle International Airport.
