Airport Arrivals

May Arrivals

Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, National Express are running a reduced service from Heathrow to Coventry. There will be one coach running at 10pm in the evening to enable you to get to campus. As such, the free transport service has been suspended until further notice, and any bookings made via National Express to Coventry will be at your own expense.

Depending on what time you arrive in the UK and complete your arrival through passport control, it may be quicker and more convenient to travel into the centre of London and catch a direct train from there to Coventry, which can take around 2hrs. Please check the National Rail Enquiries website for more information and the latest journeys running.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause on your journey to Coventry.

The Premium Meet & Greet service is still running - please scroll down this page for more information.

There is a premium meet and greet service which you can also book onto in advance. This service provides a private chauffeur who will meet you as you come through arrivals and a car will be waiting to take you directly to your accommodation in Coventry.

However, this service is not free and the costs are as follows (subject to change):

  • £75 from Birmingham Airport to Coventry
  • £220 from London Heathrow to Coventry

You are required to book 3 working days prior to your flight arriving to ensure that we have instructed the driver to collect you from the airport. You can book this service on the International Student Hub. If you have any more questions regarding this service please contact:
