Seattle University Department of Public Safety and Transportation offers a FREE shuttle service to SeaTac Airport at various times throughout the academic year. Hours of operation are generally between the hours of 5 a.m. and 8 p.m. and run during the last few days of finals week each quarter and during Thanksgiving Break. Students can expect to receive email correspondence regarding specific service and sign-up times two to three weeks before finals.
Shuttle sign-ups take place in the Public Safety office, located in the University Services Building across the hall from the bookstore, about two weeks before final exams. Students will need to bring their student ID cards and know their student ID number and flight departure time. There is generally a one (1) suitcase maximum per student, not including small bags that can travel in your lap.
We also offer a return shuttle service from Sound Transit's Link Light Rail International District Station back to campus. This service is generally offered the Saturday, Sunday and returning Monday after break. Students just need to call our office (Night Hawk line) upon boarding the Link Light Rail from the Airport, and a driver will meet them at the International District Station on 5th & S Jackson for pick up.
In the event that none of our scheduled shuttle times work for you, there are several other easy ways to travel to the SeaTac Airport.
