Airport meeting service
If you live outside of the European Union you can use our Airport Meeting Service from Heathrow Airport, which will be running on a specific day in September.
We will arrange for a taxi or mini-buses to run from the airport to the Southwark Campus for students who register to use this service. We regret that we cannot arrange airport collection on any other day or from any other airport. When registering for the service please select the halls of residence you will be staying at. When you have reserved your place, you will automatically receive a ticket and confirmation email. We will also email you with further instructions before your departure.
Please visit back later in the year for information on registering for this service.
If you would like to plan your own travel arrangements, please see our travel information on our Maps and travel page.
