Open: 10:30 am – 11 pm
Let us be the first to, officially welcome you to Edmonton! When you first arrive at the Edmonton International Airport visit the official Edmonton post-secondary airport welcome booth.
Located on the arrivals level, next to the Circle K convenience store and Door 9, across from Baggage Carousel 6. When you visit the booth, you will receive information on everything you need to know to help you settle in on your first night in Edmonton.
The airport campus greeters can point you in the right direction to find a place to stay for the evening, where to find food and how to get a ride into the city. They can answer all of your initial questions.
Sign-up for the FREE airport shuttle bus when you register for Transitions Orientation!
Once you get all of the important information, you need to start your trip to campus, make sure to sign-up for the FREE Skyshuttle bus from the airport! Skyshuttle will drop you off right on campus or at your residence! Buses run on the hour every hour, so no matter what time your plane arrives, you can hop on a bus straight to campus! Please note there is a limit of two pieces of luggage. Additional pieces of luggage or oversized items may be subject to charge, at the discretion of Skyshuttle employees.
If you arrive when the airport booth is closed, and have registered for your “Ride Home”, approach the Skyshuttle desk (next to door 7, on the arrivals level) directly. They will be expecting you!
We are pleased to once again partner with Skyshuttle Edmonton to help you get to campus. This is a FREE service for ALL new international students, so make sure you register! Skyshuttle will drop you off right on campus or at a pre-determined selection of drop-off points around the city! Buses run regularly from 5:30 am to 1:30 am, so no matter what time your plane arrives, you can hop on a bus straight to campus!
The FREE SkyShuttle service is only available for new students. If your family wishes to accompany you on the bus, they can purchase an $18 ticket/per person at the SkyShuttle booth.
Please note: This program is only for new international students arriving for the first time. Anyone using the service that does not meet that criteria will be asked to pay a fee.
