UCLan Airport Transfer Booking Form

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.

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.

Please express your interest in booking a UCLan Airport Transfer by completing the form below. We will contact you closer to the start of term with more specific details about the service we are able to offer.

To be eligible to use the Airport Transfer Service, you must book a flight which arrives in Manchester Airport between 6am and 6pm on:

  • Wednesday 9 September 2020
  • Thursday 10 September 2020
  • Friday 11 September 2020
  • Saturday 12 September 2020

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.

Please note: If you bring more than two suitcases (hold luggage) and one piece of hand luggage (carry-on), you may be unable to use the Airport transfer service due to limited luggage space available. You would then have to make your own way to Preston.
