University of illinois shuttle service - o'hare to urbana-champaign

In an effort to improve the experience of first-year international students arriving to the University of Illinois, the Univeristy has created a shuttle service specifically for first-year international students who arrive to O'Hare International Airport on their way to the Illinois campus.

Important details:

  • The shuttle service is for new international students and their families ONLY. If you reserve a spot on the bus and are not a new international student or family member for the Fall 2019 semester, due to limited seating we will have to cancel your reservation and refund your purchase.
  • The shuttle service will run from August 16-20, 2019 with multiple shuttles bringing students from O’Hare to Urbana-Champaign each day.
  • All shuttles will depart from Terminal 5
  • The cost of this service will be $37 per seat.
  • For those students who are traveling with family members, there will be a limit of four seats per student.  For multiple reservations, the registration form and payment must be completed once per reservation.
  • The luggage limit for the shuttle buses is 2 large suitcases, 1 carry-on sized item and 1 personal item per person. There will be an additional $5 charge for each additional large suitcase. This payment must be made by credit card at the airport before boarding the shuttle.
