Arrival and Orientation
The international arrival dates for students commencing their studies in September 2021 are Wednesday 1 September and Wednesday 15 September. Please try to book your flight to arrive in London on one of the above dates in order to participate in the international orientation activities and to benefit from the Roehampton airport collection service.
We offer a subsidized airport collection service from London Heathrow Airport for international students who will be living in university accommodation.
How does it work?
Due to COVID-19, this year we are running airport collection service across two dates. Early arrivals (1 September) collection is for students who are required to quarantine for 10 days upon arrival. The second arrivals (15 September) collection is for students who are not required to quarantine. Please note that:
Many students experience delays with their travel plans or visas application and so may be arriving later than planned, late at night or over the weekend. If this applies to you please email us in advance with your estimated arrival time, on your arrival please go to the Security Gatehouse at the Main Entrance to collect your keys.
On arrival, please make your way to the library, close to the university's main entrance. The welcome team will be located in the foyer between 9am and 7pm where you can register and collect your keys - campus map is available here.
You can join the welcome activities arranged for our on-campus students if you're living off campus, or overseas.
