Macquarie's airport pickup is a free service available to all new students.

Important: Please check that the following is true before booking an airport pickup request.

  1. You are completing this form at least 5 working days before your arrival date
  2. Your Flights and Accommodation have been confirmed and booked

  6. Your nominated drop-off address is a student accommodation property or private residential address in Sydney.

Please note: public locations, including Macquarie University, will not be accepted as a drop-off address.

An approval email will be sent to the email address you provide in the request form, no later than three days prior to your arrival date. This approval email is important as it will provide students, who have an approved airport pickup booking, instructions on where to meet the driver.

Please read through that approval email carefully so that you know what to do when you arrive at Sydney Airport.

Welcome desk

Upon arrival in Sydney, international students can visit the International Student Airport Welcome Desk located directly opposite Arrivals Hall A in Terminal 1 at Sydney International Airport.

The welcome desk offers guides and maps together with information on iPads and LCD screens and is staffed by dedicated student volunteers on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays from 7am-12pm during off-peak periods and 7 days a week from 7am-11am and 6pm-10pm during peak periods.

Please note that this is an information desk only, the Student Airport Welcome Desk is not the meeting point for students meeting their airport pickup.
