Airport Pickup

Green River College International Programs

Getting to Green River in Three Easy Steps:

Step 1: Booking a Flight

Book a flight with final destination: Seattle-Tacoma (Sea-Tac) international airport. Please plan to arrive on the scheduled housing move-in dates. If you plan to arrive early, you will need to make arrangements to stay in a hotel.

Step 2: Arrival Information

If you applied for housing assistance please e-mail housing@greenriver.edu the following information at least two weeks before you arrive:

  • Date of Arrival
  • Time of Arrival
  • Flight Number
  • Airline Name

Step 3: Airport pickup

Airport pickup is arranged for international students who apply for Green River housing. The service is included in your housing placement fee. Your Host Family or Airport Greeter will pick you up at the baggage claim area. Look for a sign with your name on it. If you have trouble finding your "Greeter", go to Green River's welcome table in the baggage claim area. The table is easy to find and is staffed with friendly, helpful folks that will make sure you get to your destination trouble-free.

Important Reminder:

There is no airport pick-up between the hours of 9pm and 7am on any day. If you plan to arrive during these times, you can stay in a hotel near the airport for one night. Please contact your Host Family or Airport Greeter before you arrive to make arrangements for them to pick you up at the hotel.

Hotel Arrangements

If friends or relatives will be traveling with you please email the International Guest Services for assistance with hotel reservations. If you would like to attend the free Parent Orientation, please contact Tawnya McLavey, Manager of International Visitors Program.

If you need help when you arrive, call our emergency housing cell phone: 253-740-8422. Leave a message and contact number so a staff member can call you back.

Airport Shuttle Information

If you did not apply for housing or if you have friends or relatives who need to go to a hotel, you can arrange a shuttle. To use the airport shuttle go to the Ground Transportation Information Desk near the international baggage claim area. Shuttle service to the Kent-Auburn area is approximately $35 one way and takes 40 minutes.
