Airport transfer service

The University offers an Airport Transfer Service for all new overseas UCLan students, arriving into Manchester airport, regardless of which country they have travelled from.

The Airport Transfer Service is currently closed. However, please complete the form below in order to register your interest for the service and include the dates which you are planning to arrive in the UK.

If numbers are sufficient, we will look to reopen the Airport Transfer Service. Alternatively, we will provide information on travelling to Preston from Manchester Airport in order to help you with your journey.

UCLan’s Airport Transfer Service is free of charge but only available to students. If any family members have travelled to the UK with you, they will need to make their own way to Preston by public transport. Please note, due to the Covid-19 pandemic you MUST wear face coverings on all public transport in the UK.

For more handy hints and tips for your Journey to Preston please see our Arrival into the UK webpage. We also have information on how to catch a train to Preston from Manchester Airport.

If you have any queries then please contact The <i> Student Information and Support Centre by phone on +44 (0)1772 89 5000 or email the team.

Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic is ongoing, the Airport Transfer Service is dependent on the restrictions imposed by the UK government. As such we may be unable to confirm your booking, and any details of the transfer until closer to your arrival date.
