New Students 2020

Congratulations to all of our offer holders!

These pages are designed to help you understand the next steps you should take on your journey to Durham University and help you prepare for your arrival.

In order to ensure your health and safety and that we provide the smoothest possible start for all new students, we would be very grateful if all students arriving from overseas, could let us know about your travel plans by completing the Arrival Details Form as soon as possible .
Completing this form also enables you to book a place on our free pick-up service from Newcastle Airport on selected dates.

The University offers a free pick-up service for students only (unless your family is accompanying you for the duration of your studies) from Newcastle Airport on the following dates:

  • Saturday 12th September 2020
  • Sunday 13th September 2020
  • Saturday 19th September 2020
  • Sunday 20th September 2020
  • Monday 21st September 2020
  • Tuesday 22nd September 2020

Students who have booked on charter flights from China to Manchester Airport will receive a free transfer service to their accommodation in Durham. Please note that you do not need to book this service in advance. We will receive a list of passengers on the charter flights directly from Hainan Airlines and will be waiting to welcome you at Manchester Airport. However, it is important that you do complete the Arrival Details Form above which asks for some additional information we require to prepare for your arrival.

Please ensure that you do not bring more luggage than you can handle yourself as due to covid restrictions there will not be assistance available on the day to help with your luggage.

We are really looking forward to welcoming you on campus!
