17:00 - Delayed students have been arriving all afternoon. We now have just 10 students who have not yet arrived but we are aware of their new travel plans and most should arrive tomorrow.

Credit goes to our couriers and staff in the UK and US who handled the difficult weather and travel conditions admirably. But most of all we should thank our Spring 2014 students who were calm and cooperative in spite of being tired and in unfamiliar territory. Well done all. Let the semester begin!

14:20 - The fourth and final coach has just arrived. We now have most students at Harlaxton. The remaining students will arrive independently and, if they have not done so already, should contact us (see above) with their revised travel plans.


13:30 - The third coach has arrived and Harlaxton is buzzing with excitement and anticipation.

12:30 - The second coach has arrived. Students are being orientated; luggage is being moved; and sustenance in our Refectory is available. It is good to have the students here.
