Free meet and greet collection service

Teesside University runs an airport meet and greet service for our international students. We collect new international students from Teesside International Airport and Newcastle International Airport, and transport them to Campus Heart.


Meet and greet offer

From Tuesday 31 August 2021 to Friday 17 September 2021, our meet and greet service will run from Newcastle International Airport, Teesside International Airport and Middlesbrough Train Station.

Newcastle picks-ups will be at 2.30pm every weekday during this period. Pick-up will be located at international arrivals. Anyone arriving on an internal flight (eg. Heathrow or Birmingham) will need to make their way over to international arrivals from domestic arrivals.

Teesside International Airport (sometimes called Durham Tees Valley Airport) arrivals will run on a pick-up by request basis. Students will need to request collection before arriving at the airport.

Middlesbrough Train Station arrivals will run on a pick-up by request basis. Students will need to request collection before arriving at the train station.

If you arrive outside of the meet and greet window, you can request a pick-up but this cannot be guaranteed.

In all circumstances students are required to book their collection five days prior to arrival.


The Meet and Greet service is no longer taking bookings for September 2021.
