Transportation On Your Own

While we make every effort to greet all students personally, you may need to arrange transportation on your own if you miss a connection or the University is unable to provide transportation. If you are making your way to campus on your own, you can find transportation from the airport on the lower level of the Main Terminal.

Lambert International Airport's website lists a variety of transportation methods and their associated fees: https://www.flystl.com/parking-and-transport/transportation

Taxi service is available on the lower level of the Main Terminal. Fares typically cost ~USD$40 from the airport to campus. 

Ridesharing apps such as Lyft and Uber are also available if you have their apps installed on your wifi enabled mobile device. Lambert airport has one hour of free wifi available within the terminals. 

Local Hotels

Some students choose to stay in a local hotel for a few days after arrival to settle in. Graduate students often like to tour around the area to personally look at apartments. If you need some advice on local hotels you can find more information on our Local Resource Guide page.
