Heathrow Airport Coach Service

Heathrow Airport Coach Service


This free service will provide transportation, from Heathrow airport to Leicester, for incoming international students attending the International Welcome Week in September 2017.

We will provide coaches at set times on Sunday 17th September at 11am and 4pm (UK time).

This service is being arranged for students planning on attending the International Welcome Week and may not be suitable for Orientation of Study Abroad and Erasmus students. Coaches will travel from Heathrow Airport directly to University of Leicester student hall accommodation. If you will be living in private accommodation, there will be a taxi service to take you to your accommodation.

Students should include their full name and University of Leicester student number (you can find this number on your offer letter of acceptance) when making a booking request. We will also ask you for your flight details, and where you will be living. The coaches will make multiple stops on campus, and we want to make sure your luggage is taken to the correct location. If you have not yet made an accommodation booking, you can submit the booking form now and send your accommodation details by email later to welfare@le.ac.uk

Please note that the coaches will have limited luggage capacity therefore you will only be allowed to bring 1 large suitcase OR 2 medium suitcases (large suitcases are usually 70cm-80cm tall and medium suitcases are usually around 60cm-70cm tall) and one small piece of hand luggage/carry-on bag.

Once you have submitted your booking, you will receive an automated email from shop@le.ac.uk , please note that this is not your booking confirmation. You will receive a booking confirmation in due course.  


Before you make your selection, please consider the time it will take to get through security and collect your luggage. For example, if your flight arrives at 10am you may not have enough time to get to the 11am coach.
