Meet and Greet Service - Bookings Are Now Open!!

19 and 20 September 2019

Travelling to a new country for the first time on your own can be an overwhelming experience, especially after travelling for many hours. To help make your journey easier UEA organises a Meet and Greet service from London Heathrow Airport where you will be met by UEA representatives. 

If your course start date is different from the 23 September, you will need to make your own travel arrangements. The Meet and Greet Service is only available on these two days. Any questions or help with your travel arrangement email us at

London Heathrow Airport

If you are arriving at London Heathrow our representatives will be available at the Terminal 3 "Meeting Point" to help you with your bags and make sure that you reach UEA safely on our dedicated service. This is the quickest and easiest way to get to Norwich from London Heathrow. The cost of this service is £35 and is paid online at the time of booking.

Representatives will be at the airport on the 19 and 20 September at the times detailed below.

To be guaranteed a seat you will need to book this service online before you arrive.

Important Information About the Heathrow Meet and Greet Service

  • Please plan your travel and book your coach accordingly.
  • All coaches will leave from the Terminal 3 Meeting Point. Please make sure you leave enough time to collect your bags, pass through immigration, and get to Terminal 3 if you are arriving at a different terminal. We recommend that you leave at least 1-2 hours from your flight landing, as there is likely to be a long wait at immigration control.
  • Unfortunately the coaches cannot wait for anyone who is delayed.
  • If you miss the coach, we recommend that you use the National Express Coach service to Norwich, which run a service that stops at UEA’s campus.

Norwich Airport

We recommend that you arrive via Norwich Airport, where you can expect shorter waiting times for your luggage and passing through immigration. You will be greeted by a UEA representative and be able to take a dedicated shuttle bus service directly to the UEA campus, completely free of charge. You must book a place to be guaranteed a seat and so we can meet you at the airport but this service is free of charge.

Representatives will be at the airport for flights arriving 08:30-21:00 on Thursday 19 September.
