2016 New Student Trips
Note: There is no need to stay in a hotel if you can arrive at the Portland airport on the morning your trip leaves. You need to have a flight that is scheduled to land in Portland by 11 AM Portland time, but that is 2 PM Eastern Time. So, if you leave the East Coast on a flight at 6 AM, it is only 3 AM in Portland at that time, and that gives you 8 hours of flying and layover time to get to Portland. Should your flight be delayed (due to weather or mechanical problems, etc.) and arrive in Portland later than 11 AM, we will still make sure to pick you up at the airport and get you on a New Student Trip.
If you arrive the day before your trip leaves, below is a partial list of hotels that have free shuttle service to/from the airport. If you need to stay in a hotel or motel, you will simply take the free shuttle back to the airport (to arrive at the airport between 9 am and 11 am on the day of your trip), where we will pick you up. Arriving back at baggage claim at the airport around 9:15 AM, from your hotel, will be the best- our 9:30 AM shuttle leaving from the airport will have plenty of room.
Please fill in the information about your hotel on the Travel Information Form, so we can plan our pick up schedule. The form is also accessible from your individual trip page.
Prices listed below are subject to change at the discretion of the accommodation provider and may not be current. They are intended to be used for cost estimation only. Please call the hotel directly to receive the most up-to-date price quote.
You are welcome to use any other hotel that is not listed below as long as you get back to the airport the morning of your trip. Most hotels near the airport have free shuttles, but be sure to check when you book your room. The Holiday Inn Express does not allow anyone under the age of 21 to check in without a guardian. We will be able to pick you up at the airport during our scheduled shuttles. If you choose this option, please select airport pickup on the travel information form.
