We are excited to welcome you to Kutztown University!

Our office wants your travel to KU to be as easy as possible. Please read all of the information on this page before you make any non-refundable travel plans. All travel, transportation, and hotels are at your own expense.

We recommend that you choose one of the following airports for your entry to the U.S.:

  • Newark Liberty Airport (EWR)
  • Philadelphia International Airport (PHL)
  • Lehigh Valley International Airport (ABE)
  • John F. Kennedy Airport, New York City (JFK)

We ask that you email the following information to us before the first day of orientation:

  • Flight number
  • Departure city and time
  • Arrival city and time
  • Expected arrival time and location in Kutztown 

Travel to KU from the airport is not always direct or accessible by public transportation. We highly recommend booking a private car service to travel to campus if you will not be utilizing our shuttle pick-up. Here is some information that we hope you will find to be helpful as you plan your travel.
