What if I am arriving at a different time, or on a different date?

If you can, we recommend that you schedule your flight to coincide with our airport pick-up, because this free service will take you directly to the DMU campus.

We provide this free service on key arrival dates only, for students with scheduled flight arrivals up to 18.00 on the day of the pickup. If you are arriving at a different time or at a different airport, you will need to make your own way to the DMU campus. You can find out more here about how to travel to DMU from your airport.
