Airport pick-up service

Meet and Greet Desk

We offer a free Airport pick-up service for international students arriving at Glasgow International Airport in January 2021.

This service is only available to new International students studying on full time programmes at GCU.

The registration process is simple:

All you have to do is sign up via the registration form below (will be available soon) and provide details of your arrival time, flight number, programme of study, as well as select a drop-off point in Glasgow City Centre. When you arrive at Glasgow Airport, you need to report to the Taxi Information Desk (located next to Domestic Arrivals), sign in with an advisor at the desk and you will then be directed to a taxi. 

Registration for our January 2021 taxi service will be made available shortly

If you arrive later than 11pm there will be a sign directing you to the taxi rank, tell the marshall that you're from Glasgow Caledonian University and they will give you a slip to give to the driver.

Please ensure you have a face covering for arriving at the airport, wearing in the taxi and for arriving at your accommodation.

For more information on the service, please email


If your flight time or circumstances have changed, please email

For students not eligible to use our taxi service, there is a shuttle bus that runs from the airport to the bus station in the city - please make sure you have money to cover the fare (approx £7.50). You may need to provide proof of student status (offer letter) in order to obtain a student rate. The bus station in the city centre is directly across the road from The University.
