Airport transfer service

The University organises a coach transfer service for new and returning international students at the start of autumn term. Transfers are available from Gatwick and Heathrow airports to our Colchester and Southend campuses. More information will be published here closer to October 2022.

National Express transfers

For those flying into Stansted Airport we suggest you either use a taxi or book onto the National Express coach service which takes you into central Colchester. The journey time is 1 hour.

From the drop off on Colchester High Street take a First Bus, number 62, 74B or 62B to the University. You may need to walk to Stanwell Street. Plan your journey.

Alternatively take a taxi from the taxi rank in the middle of Colchester High Street to campus (3.5 miles, 10 minutes).
