Arriving by Train - Big Welcome 2022

For current train service information please refer to the Transport for Wales website.  

Arriving by train for a pre-booked move in slot: Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 September (9.20 - 17.21)

During the main arrivals period, from Thursday 22 – Saturday 24 September, a free bus service will be available for students arriving on trains into Aberystwyth between 9.20 – 17.21.  This service will take you from the train station to the key collection point for your residence.  Please leave the station by the exit straight ahead (at the end of the platform) where our A Team volunteers (in red t-shirts) will direct you to the bus. 

If you have booked to arrive during an ‘out of hours’ slot over these dates (or arrive after 17.21 on the 22 / 23 / 24 or on 25 September), please follow the guidance noted in the section below.

 

Arriving at other times

If you have booked to move into University accommodation during one of the below time / date slots, please note that you are asked to make your way independently from the train station to the key collection point to collect your keys.   This applies to:

  • Students who have booked an ‘early’ arrival slot (e.g. international students who have pre-booked to arrive independently of the airport pick up service) before 22 September.
  • Students who have booked to arrive in an ‘out of hours’ slot during the main arrivals period (or arriving after 17.20 on the 22 / 23 / 24 /September).
  • Students who have booked a ‘late’ arrivals slot from Sunday 25 September onwards.

When leaving the train station from the left hand exit, a taxi rank is located immediately outside.
