International Arrivals Lounge

Our International Arrivals Lounge has been created especially for you!

Our special lounge will be open for you to meet others, use our facilities; go on a campus or town centre tour and get advice, guidance and useful information. It's also the place you might be taken to after we've collected you from the airport, depending on where you'll be living, while you wait for your transport on to your accommodation.

Here you'll be able to:

  • leave your luggage;
  • relax with snacks and drinks;
  • call home for free;
  • use our PCs;
  • find out more about our social events;
  • find out about opening a bank account and choosing a mobile phone network;
  • meet and socialise with other students, student ambassadors and staff;
  • find out about services offered by the University and collect useful guides;
  • go on a tour of Kingston town centre or Penrhyn Road campus;
  • get information about public transport;
  • sign up for one of our escorted supermarket trips, taking place on Thursday 15 and Friday 16 September;
  • sign up to collect your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) before you enrol - only applicable to students studying here on a visa;
  • find out more about the escorted police registration (if required); and
  • get visa and immigration advice (if required).

When: Wednesday 14 to Friday 16 September, 08:00-20:00 on Wednesday and Thursday and 08:00-18:00 on Friday 

Where: Penrhyn Road campus, John Galsworthy building, 2nd floor, room 2002.
