Traveling by Plane: Cottey will provide a shuttle leaving Kansas City International Airport at 2:00 p.m. on Monday, June 15. The Kansas City International Airport has three small terminals. When students exit their plane, they should proceed to the baggage claim to retrieve their items. If they land in Terminal B, they should then proceed to the Food Court area. If they land at Terminal A or C, they should go outside the Terminal to board the free airport shuttle (the only RED bus), which will take them to Terminal B. Students will gather at Terminal B, Food Court area to load the shuttle.
Cottey counselors will arrive at the airport at 10:00 a.m. Students who arrive prior to 11:00 a.m. should go directly to baggage claim and then proceed to Terminal B, Food Court area. Students should have their cell phones on and available while at the airport so they can be reached by Cottey staff.
The return shuttle will arrive at the airport by 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 20. Please allow 1.5 hours for check in. Cottey counselors will escort students to the terminals and ensure they make it through security. Please provide your student will appropriate funds if she has a long wait before departure.

Students will share a suite in Robertson Hall with 8-10 other high school students and one College counselor. In addition to a College counselor in each suite, a Cottey staff member will live in the residence hall during the week. We operate on an honor system and room keys are not issued during the summer programs.
Every student will share a room with at least one other high school student. The bedrooms have a twin-sized bed, dresser, and desk for each student. Each suite has a kitchen area that is equipped with a full-sized refrigerator, a microwave, and hot plate. Each suite also has a bathroom that consists of two to three private stalls, two private showers, and a private shower/bathtub.
The residence hall offers free Wi-Fi, a computer room with printer, a laundry room, and a television room with vending machines.
The temperature in the residence hall will vary between 74-78 degrees depending on location of the suite in relation to the sunlight. For this reason, we recommend only bringing a light blanket or not blanket at all as each student will be provided with a fitted sheet, a flat sheet, and a pillow. Classrooms in the academic building do tend to be cool and a jacket or hooded sweatshirt is recommended.
** Halls are locked but please leave valuables at home or on your person. You can always leave any electronics or medications with the Cottey staff member in the hall.
