The University runs a coach transfer service for new students arriving from London Heathrow and London Gatwick airports, travelling to our Colchester and Southend Campuses.
The University is not running coach services from London Stansted Airport but Student Ambassadors will be at the airport to meet you and help you with your onward journey. They will be located by the arrivals gate.
Seats must be booked in advance using the airport transfer booking form.
Once you have made the booking and paid the relevant seat fee you will receive a receipt by email. This receipt will be your e-ticket. Please have it with you at the airport to board the coach. If you do not receive a receipt by email within seven days, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44 1206 874597.
You can also book tickets for a return journey from Colchester Campus to London Heathrow or London Gatwick airports using the return journey booking form.
Each seat costs £45. You may book more than one seat if you wish to travel with parents or guardians. Please ensure that you book as early as possible if you wish to travel with relatives and provide their full name(s), as it appears on their passport, when making your booking.
When choosing your coach departure time, please allow two hours from your flight landing time to clear customs, immigration and security.
Getting to our campuses couldn't be easier, but if you can't use the airport transfer service it's worth planning your route in advance.
If you are using public transport instead of our airport transfer service on Arrivals Day, please be aware that there is due to be a replacement bus service in place for some or all of your journey to Campus due to engineering works on the train lines. Your journey is therefore likely to take longer than usual.
