Postgraduate arrival day is Monday 23 September 2019.
Students travelling from abroad should check our Manchester airport collection service.
Getting to York
If you're using a satnav, the Campus West postcode is YO10 5DD and Campus East is YO10 5GY. College directions will be clearly signposted on your approach.
There are buses from York railway station approximately every five minutes during the day and it takes around 20 minutes to reach campus.
Register your arrival
It’s a good idea to register as soon as you arrive. If you’re in University accommodation this will happen automatically when you collect your keys. Otherwise visit the Student Hub in Market Square as soon as you can and they will register you.
Pick up your keys from your college
If you’re in University accommodation, remember to bring your offer letter or email and some form of photo identification – for example: your passport, driving licence card or national identity card.
Collect your Uni Card
Your University Card is your ID, printing, library and room access card. If you're living off-campus and haven't chosen a college you can pick this up from the Information Centre. If you're living on campus or have chosen a college to join, you can pick it up from your college reception. Part-time students will receive their Uni card in the post and HYMS and Health Science students will receive their card from their department.
Getting settled in
If you're living on campus, we’ll email you a room inventory when you move in. Check your room thoroughly and if you have a problem, report it online.
Once you've unpacked, why not explore the campus or join a campus tour?
See arrival information for new international students for help with tasks you need to do when arriving in York, such as registering your attendance and collecting your Biometric Residence Permit (BRP).
Food and drink
Visit one of our catering outlets on campus and treat your driver before they set off back home.
To find your nearest outlet, see campus food and bars.
Get online on campus
There will be instructions on how to get online in your study bedroom. If you have any problems, see IT information for new users. IT services will also be running helpdesk sessions to help you sort things out.
Visit your college stall
Some colleges have a stall where you can buy college t-shirts and other merchandise. There’s no pressure to buy but it could help you to feel part of your college from day one.
Photography will take place during arrivals days, which may be used for marketing purposes by the University of York. If you have any concerns or would prefer not to feature, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
