We operate a free ‘Meet and Greet’ service on specific dates at Birmingham Airport for all of our new international and EU students starting a course at the University.
Our team will be available to welcome you at the Airport and will be happy to answer any questions that you may have. The team will then help with your transfer by coach to our University accommodation.
The service is only available from Birmingham Airport to our Halls of Residence on specified dates.

There is an Airport Taxi Rank located directly outside the airport building. All of the taxis are Black Cabs licensed by Birmingham City Council and operate a 24-hour, 365 day service. You can take one of these taxis to your accommodation. Birmingham Airport is approximately 15 miles from Birmingham City Centre and this journey will take around 30 minutes. The taxi from Birmingham Airport to your accommodation will cost approximately £30 - £35. All taxis from the Airport Taxi Rank accept major debit and credit cards, or you can pay with UK Pounds Sterling.
