Free shuttle bus from airport

Heriot-Watt University organises a free shuttle bus service from Edinburgh Airport to our Edinburgh campus. The journey takes around 10 minutes.

The service will run Saturday and Sunday before freshers' week in early September every hour on the hour from 09.00hrs to 22.00hrs. Please check back to this page for updates.

When you arrive at Edinburgh Airport look for the 'Universities and Colleges Scotland' welcome stand at UK arrivals. Student helpers will then direct you to the departure point for the Heriot-Watt shuttle bus.

I arrive after enrolment week - how do I enrol?

If you will arrive after enrolment week finishes on Friday 12th September then you must notify us here in SML, via e-mail, of your expected arrival date.

Once you do arrive you should report as soon as you can during office hours (Mon to Fri, 9am - 5pm) to the SML Postgraduate Office for advice on how to enrol.
