Airport Collections – Monday 23 September

You must book a place in advance to use our free coach service from Manchester airport.

The first coaches will leave Manchester at 9am, with further coaches throughout the day according to demand. The final coaches will leave Manchester at 3.30pm and it will not be possible to wait for latecomers. You must allow at least 90 minutes to go through immigration control and collect your luggage before reaching the coach. The coach takes approximately two hours to reach York.

Bookings open in August
You will be able to book your free place once you have enrolled with the University (you should receive emailed instructions for doing so by the end of August). On enrolling, you will be able to access e:Vision, where you can book your place on a coach in the ‘Your Support’ section. The final date for booking a place is Wednesday 18 September 2019.

You will need to arrange onward travel if your accommodation is off campus. A member of the York Welcome Team at the airport can book a taxi on your behalf. You should ensure you have sufficient GBP with you.
