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.


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.
