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.

In September 2016, the International Arrivals Lounge offered students a place to:

  • leave their 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;
  • sign up to collect their Biometric Residence Permit (BRP) before enrolment - 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).

Information about our January 2017 International Arrivals Lounge will be available soon.
