Orientation Travel Arrangements

Upon flying to the United States, your final destination should be one of these two airports:

  • Baltimore Washington International (BWI) in Baltimore, MD
  • Dulles International (IAD) near Washington D.C.

The closest bus and train station is:

  • Harrisburg, PA Train and Bus Station

New International Students should plan to arrive at Baltimore Washington International Airport (BWI), or Dulles International Airport (IAD), on August 13, 2015. Wilson College will provide shuttle service from these airports that day. There is one shuttle pickup for Dulles (IAD) and Baltimore Washington (BWI) at 7:00 p.m. Wait by the International Arrivals baggage pickup area for a Wilson shuttle driver carrying a 'Wilson' sign. Driver will also be carrying Wilson College identification, which you may ask to see. However, you must inform Wilson College International Student & Scholar Services office at least two weeks prior to your flight of your Airlines and flight number.

Returning Students are expected to move in August 21 or 22, between 11:00am & 5:00pm. because Sunday August 23 is the Activities Fair. All shuttle pickups will be on Saturday August 22, 2015, at 5 pm at BWI, IAD, & Harrisburg bus/train station. All airport, bus, train, Metro and Megabus pickup arrangements must be made in advance with Lorie Helman. Last day to arrange for a Fall semester pickup shuttle is August 14, 2015.
