Airport Pickup

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.  Currently, the service is only offered for first time arriving new UHCL students and is not available for current UHCL students or individuals who are not UHCL students.

1) The Spring 2015 service will be on December 21 & 22, 2014 and January 5 – 13 and 16 – 19, 2015. We do not offer the service during the University Winter Break and during the days of New International Student Orientation.

2) For the safety of our drivers, airport pickup’s will be offered for flights arriving between 8:00 AM and 9:00PM.

3) The Drop-off Address is to be in ClearLake area only.

4) We cannot confirm your Airport Pickup unless you register for New International Student Orientation on January 14 & 15, 2015.

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.
