The Student Enrolment & Retention Unit (SERU) coordinates an Airport Meet and Greet service which allows us to welcome our overseas students at the Grantley Adams International Airport. The Airport Meet and Greet will run from Sunday, August 18 to Sunday, September 1, 2024. This service is provided for flights arriving between the hours of 10:00 a.m. and 10:00 p.m.  To be included in the Airport Meet and Greet, you must register and provide your flight information using this link: Airport Meet and Greet Registration Form 

Transportation From the Airport
Students will need to arrange for transportation to their accommodation, whether on or off campus. Taxis will be available on exiting the arrival hall at the Airport and the estimated cost of a taxi from the Airport to the Cave Hill Campus is US $47. There is an additional charge for more than one piece of checked luggage.
US and Canadian Dollars and the British Pound are accepted and may be used to pay the taxi.
