Airport and Arrivals

Airport and Arrivals

There are two airports students should consider when making flight arrangements that are located in close proximity (by car) to Kent:

  1. Cleveland-Hopkins International Airport (airport code: CLE) approximately 50 minutes 
  2. Akron-Canton International Airport (airport code CAK), approximately 30 minutes 

Students will receive an airport pick-up guide when they receive their immigration documents.  This guide will provide information on the most efficient and safest way to arrive to campus. 

Students must arrive before or on the Program Start Date. For example if the Program Start Date is August 18th, the student may arrive in the US up to 30 days before—the earliest date being July 19th.  If for some reason students are not able to arrive by the Program Start Date, contact International Student and Scholar Services by email at We strongly recommend students arrive within a week before Program Start Date.
