Meet and Greet: Airport Transfer Service

The University will be offering a transfer service for new students arriving at Manchester International Airport (MAN) in the summer.

University representatives, along with International Student Ambassadors will be on hand to assist you and to give you a warm welcome on your arrival into the United Kingdom. The service will run from 08:00 to 19:30 daily and will be free of charge for all students staying in University accommodation. Students arriving in September and staying in Private accommodation will be able to join the service for a £25 charge.

Invitations for the service will be automatically sent via email to those eligible at the start of September. Students staying in University accommodation can book onto the service early by logging onto the accommodation section in Liverpool Life and selecting Airport Meet and Greet in the Requests section. Students staying in Private accommodation will be able to reserve their place in September. If you have any concerns in the meantime however, please email meetandgreet@liv.ac.uk and a member of the welcome team will respond.

The meet and greet transfer service is for students only.
