Arrive at the University

Find out when and where we can meet you and how we can help.

When to arrive

If possible arrive when your accommodation is ready, and avoid arriving late at night.

If you are need to find private accommodation, you need to arrive before the start of your course.

If you are arriving into the UK late at night we recommend booking a local hotel and traveling to Bristol the next day. 

Travel to Bristol

You will need to organise your own travel to Bristol once you have arrived in the UK.  Make sure you plan how to get to the University.

Meet and Greet Service: when and where we can meet you

During arrivals weekend (20-22 September) our International Student Ambassadors will be waiting to welcome you at a number of airports and stations.

Look out for them in their red and white t-shirts, holding University of Bristol signs. 

If you are arriving during Meet and Greet service operating times, please tell us your arrival details here so we know to expect you.

If you are arriving outside of these times, find out about planning your journey.
