Airport Pickup Request
The Office of International Services will provide transportation from St. Louis-Lambert Airport to Saint Louis University for students. To reserve a pickup time, please complete and submit the form below. Please contact the Office of International Services at firstname.lastname@example.org if you will be traveling on another day.
How do I find the SLU staff that will meet me? If you request airport pickup, a Saint Louis University staff member will meet you at St. Louis-Lambert Airport. The staff will be easily recognizable by their Saint Louis University name tags and Saint Louis University signs. SLU staff is usually waiting by the baggage claim for your flight. SLU staff remain at the airport throughout the day and evening to meet students. If you are unable to locate a SLU staff member, you can go to the information desk to page a SLU staff member. Even if you are delayed a few hours, we will record this information and will meet you when you arrive.
Is there a number to call when I arrive? If you do not see SLU staff when you arrive or you arrive on a day that we are not picking up students, you can give our office a call at 1-314-977-2318 during normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm CST). If it is not during normal business hours and you feel unsure about what to do next, you can contact the department of Public Safety & Security Services at SLU by calling 1-314-977-3000. They will have instructions from our office concerning the next steps.
What if I am delayed or not arriving on the airport pickup days? If you plan to live on campus and your flight plans change dramatically due to delays (a day or more and cannot contact us about the changes) or you will be arriving on another day, please plan on taking a taxi to Saint Louis University. A taxi to Saint Louis University from St. Louis-Lambert Airport will cost $50 USD. Many people find the taxi service to be reliable in the U.S. At Lambert Airport, the taxis are found in the garage on the same level as the baggage claim. If it is normal business hours (Monday-Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm CST), please come to the Office of International Services (3694 West Pine Mall, Des Peres Hall, Room 102). You can easily locate Des Peres Hall because the building is surrounded by flags. *Please Note: The Office will be closed on Monday, January 16, in observance of Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
If your arrival is after 5:00 pm or before 9:00 am, please have the taxi take you to 221 N. Grand Blvd., go into DuBourg Hall, report to the Department of Public Safety & Security Services, and ask them for help in getting to your on-campus housing.
If you are not living on-campus or have not yet decided whether or not to live on campus, you should request that the taxi take you to a hotel near the campus. Click here for more information about hotels near campus.
