Arrival and Orientation
The international arrival date for students commencing their studies in April 2021 is Tuesday 6 April. Please try to book your flight to arrive in London on that day in order to participate in the international orientation activities and to benefit from the reduced Uber fare offered by the university.
We offer a reduced taxi fare from London Heathrow Airport for international students who will be living in university accommodation.
How does it work?
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, the university will give £20 Uber vouchers to international students arriving on the date above, rather than providing a coach. Please note that:
• All arriving to the UK are required to quarantine upon arrival.
What to do if you are making your own way to campus
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.
What to do if you arrive late
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.
What to do if you are not living on campus
You can join the welcome activities arranged for our on-campus students if you're living off campus, or overseas.
Key Travel Booking
The University of Roehampton is collaborating with our travel partner Key Travel to provide a travel booking portal, offering beneficial fares for students.
