International Student Arrival
International students may arrive as early as Sunday, August 19th. You will be able to check in to your room in Intersections at PAR at that time. The Front Desk will be staffed at all hours. You do not need to apply for early arrival, but you should make sure you sign up for LLC Orientation at the Intersections website: http://www.housing.illinois.edu/intersections.
The information located at the International Student and Scholars Services should assist you with other questions you may have about your arrival. http://isss.illinois.edu/students/Fall_Check_In.shtml#ToCU
You will need to take a taxicab from Willard Airport to PAR. There is no bus service at the time your plane arrives. Public bus service, to and from the airport, runs only when University classes are in session.
The average cost of a taxicab from Willard Airport to campus is $8 - $14. You may ask an airport employee for assistance. It is customary to tip taxicab drivers. Tip is not included in fare and the average tip amount is $2 to $5. For a list of local taxi services, please visit this page at http://ci.champaign.il.us/about-champaign/transportation/ and scroll to the "Taxis and Limos" section.
