Booking now closed

Online booking for our free coach service from London Heathrow to the University campus on Saturday 21 September and Sunday 22 September 2019 has now closed. A few of the coaches have spaces left so if you have not booked a space and need one please email heathrowcoachbookings@bath.ac.uk as soon as possible and we may be able to find you one, this is not guaranteed.

If there are no seats available you will need to arrange your own travel to Bath. Our website gives details and links for coaches and trains.

If you will be arriving outside of normal key collection times you need to contact us. There is information here if your accommodation is on campus or if you are in University accommodation in the city of Bath.

Your luggage allowance

Space on the coach is limited. You can bring:

  • two large suitcases
  • one item of hand luggage
  • one laptop bag

Your suitcases must be no bigger than these measurements. Your hand luggage must be small enough to fit into the overhead rack or beneath your seat on the coach.

If your luggage is over the allowance, you may have to arrange your own transport to Bath.

You can send your belongings directly to the University for collection when you arrive.

Finding us at the airport

International Welcome Ambassadors, wearing yellow T-shirts, will be waiting for you at the meeting point in Terminal 3. This is on the ground floor of the arrivals area, next to the tourist information.

Arriving at another terminal

There are free transfers between Heathrow Airport's four terminals.

You can take a train or bus from Terminal 4 or 5 to Heathrow Central Station. The Central Station is a short walk from Terminal 3.

If you miss your coach

We'll try to find a place for you on the next available service. If this is not possible you may need to arrange your own travel to Bath.

International Welcome Ambassadors will be available to assist you during the day.

If you arrive after the last coach has left on Saturday, you can book accommodation at Heathrow and come on the first coach on Sunday if there is space.

If you arrive after the last coach has left on Sunday, you will have to arrange your own transport to Bath.
