Airport Taxi Service

Meet and Greet Desk

We offer a free Airport Taxi Service for international students arriving at Glasgow International Airport in September 2021.

This service is only available to new International students studying on full time programmes at GCU. For up-to-date information about traveling from abroad, please see our Ready for You at GCU webpages.

The registration process is simple:

You must sign up via the registration form and provide details of your arrival time, flight number and programme of study. You’ll also need to select a drop-off point in Glasgow City Centre.

When you arrive at Glasgow Airport, you should 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. 

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

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


If your flight time or circumstances have changed, please email

For students who aren’t eligible to use our taxi service, there is a shuttle bus that runs from the airport to Buchanan Bus Station in Glasgow city centre (which is directly across the road from the University). Please make sure you have money to cover the fare (approx £7.50).

You may also need to provide proof of student status (offer letter) in order to obtain a student rate.
