The Office of International Programs provides transportation from Houston International Airport (IAH) to Huntsville for students arriving for their first semester at Sam Houston State University.

For the Spring 2018 semester, airport pick-ups will be available beginning January 2, 2018.

Students arriving after January 15, 2018 will be accommodated by special request only (pick-up is not guaranteed). If you will be arriving after January 15, please contact Dana directly at
1) You must submit your airport pick-up request 7 days before you intend to arrive.
2) If you are arriving after 9 p.m., please arrange to stay at an airport hotel and schedule your pickup for the following day.

How to find your driver: Our driver will always wait for the students at the Starbucks Coffee shop at Terminal E Arrival Floor on the scheduled day, holding a sign that says “SHSU Office of International Programs Airport Pickup Service”. You will receive an email several days before your departure informing you of the exact time that you are scheduled to be picked up.
Most apartment offices in Huntsville close around 7:00 p.m., and the whole process from meeting the driver at the airport to arriving in Huntsville usually takes around 2 hours. Please call the apartment management office to see when the latest time is that you can check in/get the key. If the management office is closed by the time you arrive, you will be dropped off at the secondary address (your friend’s place or a local hotel) that you provided. It is recommended that you book a flight that arrives early in the day.

If you arrive after 9:00 p.m., our office will make every attempt to find a volunteer to pick you up, but this is not guaranteed. In this case, we highly recommend you schedule your pick-up for the following day and stay at one of the airport hotels for that evening. Most airport hotels provide free shuttles to the airport terminals, so you can catch the pickup for the next day.

You have to reserve your space on the pick-up vehicle 7 days in advance. You will receive a confirmation email after you submit your request.
