Autumn Arrivals

Students attending degree programmes commencing in October should arrive on the following dates if you wish to use the International Student Welcome Service available at Newcastle International Airport. If you are arriving outside of these dates please follow the instructions for arrival under 'Travelling to Durham University'. The cost of the service is 30.00 GBP per person and only students and accompanying family members who have booked can use the service. Please ensure that you bring a print out of your booking with you. All other students/family members would need to take a taxi.

For students arriving on the Emirates flight (EK035), could you please tie a yellow ribbon/cable tie (or something yellow) to your suitcase so that airport staff can identify the luggage for Durham University students, ensuring that it is available for you as quickly as possible once you are ready to collect it.

Any enquiries should be sent to wellbeing.swceoffice@durham.ac.uk
