Airport pick-up service

Student ambassadors greeting Kingston University international studentsWe understand that arriving in a new country can be exciting, but also a bit overwhelming! That's why we offer an airport pick-up service for new international students living in the local area.

Free airport pick-up service

  • Where: Heathrow Airport and Gatwick Airport
  • When: Wednesday 9 September 2020 (7am – 5pm).

If you arrive on the day and have not pre-booked the airport pick-up service, we will try to fit you in one of the coaches, but (a) this is not guaranteed, and (b) may involve a long wait time (until an empty coach seat becomes available).

How long will it take?

  • Clearing immigration and collecting luggage: 30 minutes up to 3 hours (very hard to predict)
  • Waiting with other students for next available taxi/coach: 30-90 minutes 
  • Travel time to Kingston: 30-45 minutes 
  • Total time: 3-5 hours.


  • Maximum two pieces (if you have more bags, you may have to wait for next coach with more space)
  • You'll need to be able to carry your own luggage.
