Planning your arrival

We regularly update our arrivals page with travel guidance and other important pre-departure information.

Airport Collections

We are offering free airport collections from Manchester airport, on a first-come, first-served basis, on the following dates:

  • Friday 20 January
  • Saturday 21 January
  • Wednesday 25 January  

If you would like to use the free airport collection service, you are advised to book flights to arrive in the UK, on the above dates and to Manchester Airport.

Once your travel plans have been finalised, you must submit an airport collections form at least three working days before you are due to land so that we can arrange your collection from the airport. We will not be able to provide collection if you submit the form later than three working days before your arrival.

The collection service is only available on the dates given above, from Manchester Airport and on a ‘first-come, first-served’ basis. If the buses were full, or if you were to arrive on other dates or at another airport, you would have to make your own way to the University.

Ensure that you read our terms and conditions document carefully before you apply for free airport collection.

Travel to Hull

We can provide helpful guides explaining how you can reach Hull from Manchester and Heathrow airports. You may also wish to book rail or coach transport using The Trainline, National Express or Megabus services. We cannot provide refunds for money spent on transport to Hull from the airport if you do not use our collection service.

Although we recommend that you do not bring more luggage than you need, please note that bedding is not provided, so you must bring your own or have it delivered when you arrive. You can purchase bedding online for delivery from many websites including Tesco , Wilko, UniKitOut and Amazon.
