Airport Pickup Request

As part of New International Student Orientation (NISO), the Office of International Admissions and Programs (OIAP), provides a complimentary one time pick up from George Bush Intercontinental Airport or Hobby Airport for arriving new international students. 

Guidelines for Airport pickup's for new students:

1) The service is only offered for new UHCL students upon their initial arrival in Houston and is not available for current UHCL students or individuals who are not UHCL students.

2) The Spring 2016 service will be December 15, 2015 to December 22, 2015.  In observance of the University closing for Winter Break we will not provide the service from December 23, 2015 through January 3, 2016.  Service will resume on January 4, 2016 ending on January 12, 2016.

3) For the safety of our drivers, airport pickups will be offered for flights arriving between 8:00 AM and 8:00PM.

4) Requests should be made as early as possible. Preferably 2 weeks in advance of arrival date and no later than 3 days in advance of the arrival date.

5) In order to receive a confirmation, you are required to provide us with the address of your drop-off location. The Drop-off Address must be in the Clear Lake area only.

6) We cannot confirm your Airport Pickup unless you register for New International Student Orientation on January 13 & 14, 2016 using your E-Services account.

7) Because it is difficult to secure university vehicles, requests cannot be guaranteed. However, OIAP will try its best to arrange for pickup's if given enough notice. OIAP will communicate with you via email as to the status of your request.

If we cannot arrange a pick-up service, you may consider reserving a seat with Super Shuttle. You can do this online through their website at or by phone (800) 258-3826. The cost should be around $55 for a one way trip from the airport. You can also use a taxi cab; however, please realize that this may cost up to $100.  You can also check the Airport websites for more information about other local shuttle ground transportation.

Make your airport pickup request.
