Transportation to Campus

If you are arriving by car, we recommend you use Google Maps for accurate directions to campus. 

If you are arriving by plane, train, or bus, you must arrange your own transportation to campus. We recommend Champagne Limousines, which serves Lambert-St. Louis International Airport, the St. Louis bus terminal, and the Amtrak College Avenue train station in Alton, Illinois.
 

Shipping Baggage

You may ship trunks, packing crates, bikes, and luggage to the College by: United Parcel Service, FedEx Ground or Home Delivery, DHL, or through the U.S. mail so that they are here when you arrive. 

Indicate that you are a "NEW STUDENT" as well as the house to which you have been assigned on each item you ship. This helps ensure that all items will be placed in your house prior to your arrival for New Student Orientation.
