Campus Safety provides transportation for students to or from the airport at designated times during breaks and at the beginning and end of each semester. Every effort is made to group students together to reduce the cost to $35.00 per student. Students may request to be grouped with other students to reduce the cost; however, this can result in students having to leave campus several hours before their flight is schedule to depart and/or longer wait times at the airport until a scheduled pick-up.
Charges are placed on student accounts after the service has been provided.
Please note that we are not able to transport Emotional Support Animals in Campus Safety vehicles, including shuttles to or from the airport.
Note—All requests for transportation must be made at least one week in advance.
