To safely transport our students from airports to the university, we're running a coach transfer service for new students arriving from London Heathrow, London Gatwick and London Luton airports.
The University is unable to run coach services from London Stansted airports, but you can book a ticket through National Express to take you Colchester town, where you would have a short taxi journey or bus ride to the University.
Find out the arrivals dates for new and new and returning students arriving from overseas, that are required to quarantine on one of our campuses.
Coaches are currently scheduled as follows from the airport to the Colchester and Southend campuses, but these are subject to change dependant on government guidelines relating to COVID:
|3-4 October||12pm and 5pm||Heathrow|
|3-4 October||12pm and 5pm||Gatwick|
Please note: Tickets are £50 each and there is a maximum luggage allowance of 3 cases.
When selecting your coach time, please allow adequate time after you land to check in for your coach transfer. The coach will leave promptly at its designated time slot.
You are required to wear a mask for the duration of your travel, these will not be provided.
If you are showing any symptoms of coronavirus the driver may refuse your onward travel and you will need to arrange your own transport to campus. The coach company reserve the right to refuse travel for any reason, if you are refused travel you will need to arrange your own transport to campus.
If your flight is delayed or you are held up at customs and you miss your coach we will try and place you on another but do not guarantee this. You should assume you need to arrange your own transport to campus.
