International Student Arrival

Saturday, August 15 and Sunday, August 16, 2020

This is when new international students must arrive on campus. An international student ambassador will meet new international students at Cleveland Hopkins International Airport on these two days. Please check your email for airport shuttle confirmation. When you arrive on campus, you will check into your residence hall room and be given rental linens. These linens can be used until our shopping trip, where you will buy your own.

If you arrive before the two student arrival dates listed above, you will need to arrange for temporary housing at a local hotel. BW will provide pick-up service from your hotel by BW on the first student arrival date only.
