Waiting in Terminal 5: If your flight arrives earlier in the day there is a McDonald's fast-food restaurant in the baggage claim area so you can get something to eat while you wait. There is also a currency exchange to change money and an ATM machine was well as restrooms in the area.

If you will arrive earlier in the day, we strongly recommend that you take a taxi cab to campus. Although taxi's are not free, they are a very safe and efficient way to get to campus. Just follow the airport signs to the taxi-stand outside the terminal.
