This service is available between 7am - 7pm and only from Heathrow airport. If you arrive a day early you will have to arrange your own transportation to campus. Please be aware that you should have arrived and gone through immigration by 7pm in order to use this service, flights arriving after 7pm are not eligible for this service and you will need to call a taxi. This period will be incredibly busy at Heathrow and it may take up to 2 hours or more to get through border control so bear this in mind when booking flights.
