If you wish to book a seat on one of the coaches please complete and return the form at least fourteen days before your flight. If you do not return a booking form, we cannot guarantee a place on the airport coach.

If there are seats available after those who have booked places and any new students have boarded the coaches, we may be able to accept additional passengers, such as accompanying friends and relatives (other than family dependents) who will not be studying at Loughborough University, who we cannot normally transport.  The fee for additional passengers is £20.

Please note that if your flight is delayed, it will not be possible for the coach to postpone its departure beyond 11am.

Meeting Point - Terminal 3

The meeting point will be to the side of the Terminal 3 Arrivals Meeting Point, near the Airport Information Desk.  Loughborough University staff and/or students will be at the meeting point from around 10am and will be clearly identifiable by signs and/or T-shirts with the Loughborough University logo.  It is important that you should arrive there in good time.  If you arrive at Heathrow Terminal 4 or at London Gatwick Airport North Terminal there are Information Desks where you can obtain information about transfer to Heathrow Terminal 3 if you wish to use the special coach service.

For pre-sessional course dates the coaches will drop students at the designated Hall of Residence for the pre-sessional course.  On other dates the coaches will take students to their Hall of Residence (where it is known), or onto campus where there will be a minibus service for smaller off-campus residences. New students will take priority when transferring to transport for accommodation on campus.

We look forward to hearing from you.
