Booking Your Flight
You must arrive at the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport on January 6th-8th. Campus housing is available starting January 8th. If you arrive on January 6th or 7th you must request to stay with a host family or make arrangements to stay in a hotel. If you fill out the Arrival Information Form we will provide you with free transportation on the dates above. Our shuttles will pick up students at the airport at 12:00 pm, 3:00 pm, and 6:00 pm, and bring them to UCA’s campus. Student volunteers will be there to greet students and take them to the shuttle. Students who arrive on the 6th and 7th and requested host families will meet them at this time.
Students arriving after 6:00 pm on the 6th, 7th, or 8th will need to make arrangements to stay in a hotel near the airport. An airport shuttle will take students to either the Comfort Inn & Suites or the Holiday Inn & Suites. Please note that students 17 and under will not be able to reserve a room for themselves, and should plan to arrive at an earlier time.
Students arriving before January 6th will be responsible for their own transportation from the airport, as well as reserving a hotel room for themselves until the UCA residence halls open on January 8th. Students arriving after January 8th will be responsible for their own transportation from the airport to UCA.
If you do not fill out the Arrival Information Form, you will be expected to provide your own transportation from the airport to Conway.
