Travel and Transportation
Once you have your visa, it is time to make your flight arrangements. Please let us know your itinerary (date of arrival, all flight numbers) as soon as you have it. You will need to arrive by August 15th and check in at the Sophia-Downing International Center for the mandatory nternational Exchange Student Orientation, which will take place August 16-August 21.
Your arrival airport should be Nashville, Tennessee (BNA), which is about 70 minutes away from Bowling Green. To get from Nashville to your residence in Bowling Green, whether that be on- or off-campus, you will need to make arrangements for an airport pick-up. We recommend scheduling a shuttle through the Bowling Green Shuttle Service, which offers a discounted rate ($55) to WKU students. You can schedule your shuttle here to obtain the WKU rate.
*Please note that the WKU Shuttle Service mostly provides transport for on campus locations, specifically:
Campbell Lane Bus Stop, Creason Lot Bus Stop, Pierce Ford Tower Bus Stop, or Parking Structure #1 on College Heights Boulevard.
