Airport Pickup

We encourage you to arrange your own transportation from the airport. However, we can provide an airport pickup service on a limited basis with prior arrangements. Please email your request to lcc@uh.edu at least one week in advance of your planned arrival. You will be charged a $50.00 fee for this service.

Please note: we cannot provide airport pickup on the day of check-in or any day after student check-in.

You can also arrange an airport pickup with the Super Shuttle services. Please go to their website to arrange a pickup. SuperShuttle

You can ask at the airport about taxicab service and the Houston metro bus schedule. An express metro bus goes to downtown Houston.

The UH housing office closes at 5:00 PM on weekdays and is closed on weekends. If you already have a dormitory reservation, it may be possible for you to arrange an after-hours check-in. Otherwise you can stay at the University Hilton Hotel, which is located on the university campus. Hotel reservation telephone: (713) 743-2471. Please contact the hotel for the cost per night.


Tutoring

The LCC provides tutoring to students who need help with their studies. Tutors meet with students one-on-one to assist them with their language skills. If students would like additional help or if LCC tutoring is unavailable, they can hire a personal tutor. A current list of LCC approved private tutors is available in the LCC Front Office.
