Arrival and Orientation

International Arrivals for September 2020 will take place across two dates:

  • Saturday 29 August
  • Wednesday 16 September

The Saturday 29 August collection is for students who are flying in from countries not on the UK travel corridor country list and are therefore required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival, and Wednesday 16 September collection is for students who are not required to quarantine. However, please note that you can sign up for either airport collection date, and students required to quarantine arriving on or after 16 September, will still be able to do so.

Please try to book your flights to arrive in London on one of the two dates in order to participate in the international orientation activities and to use the airport pick up service to the University from Heathrow Airport.

How does it work?

Friendly representatives from the University of Roehampton will be in the arrivals area at Heathrow to meet you. You can't miss us – we will be wearing Roehampton hoodies and holding University of Roehampton signs! We will take you to your transport and send you on your way to the University. Once you have signed up we will send you an email with all the details and contact information.
