If you would like a private airport transfer to meet you when you arrive in the UK, we are happy to arrange this for you. We offer transfers from all London-based airports at any time on a Sunday. If you are using Studio accommodation, please note that we book in weekly blocks from Sunday to Sunday or Sunday to Saturday. With this in mind, please ensure that your flights arrive and depart accordingly.
If you don’t want us to arrange a transfer for you and plan to make your own way to your accommodation, please tick the appropriate box on the application form. You should aim to arrive at your accommodation between 12:00 and 17:00 on the Sunday.

Arrival in the UK
When you arrive in the UK on a Sunday, you will be met at the airport by our transfers team and taken by taxi or coach to your accommodation, where you will be met by your host or a residential warden.
You should plan to leave on the Sunday immediately after your course ends. We will aim to get you to the airport at least three hours before your flight is due to depart.

At the Airport
Difficulty finding the Studio Representative?
Some of the London airports are quite big and it is not always easy to see who is meeting you. If, after looking carefully, you can’t find the person meeting you in the ARRIVALS HALL, we will help you to find each other if you call our emergency phone.
When you call please tell us your name and which airport you have arrived at and we will ask the Studio Representative to find you.
If you are not sure if the person meeting you is a Studio Representative, you should ask the person meeting you to tell you your Studio student reference number. If you have any doubts you can call us on our emergency phone.
Once you meet our Studio Representative it is possible that there will be a short wait of up to one hour while other students are also met. Once everyone is present you can go together to the taxi or coach.
Travelling from the airport?
Journey time depends on the airport locations and the time of travel, but there is usually no time for toilet-stops, so please make sure you are comfortable for your journey before you leave the airport.
There is no need to worry if a flight is delayed. Each Sunday, our airport transfers team will be monitoring the flights and their expected arrival times. A Studio Representative will be waiting for you.
If you cannot find your baggage go to the Lost Baggage desk in the baggage hall. Do not leave the baggage hall until you have spoken to someone at the desk. You can call a member of the Studio Cambridge team and they will help you.
