Please keep in mind you MUST arrive in Accra on January 22, and you are responsible for booking your own flight. Housing is available only for the dates of the program (January 22 – May 20, 2017) so if you plan to arrive early or leave late, please be aware you will be responsible for your own accommodations and your own travel arrangements between the airport and residence. You can access the program calendar here.
The best airport to fly into is the Kotoka International Airport, which is about a 10 minute drive (subject to traffic conditions) from the NYU residence. If possible please try to arrive after 7am and before 10pm on January 22 to ensure that someone from the site staff will be available to meet you at the airport and take you to the NYU Accra residence. We will collect flight information later in the semester which the Accra staff will use to coordinate airport coverage. Closer to arrival we will send additional information including an Arrival Cheat Sheet.
When shopping for flights, you are welcome to use any provider of your choice, but we encourage you to use NYU’s preferred partner, Egencia, to buy your ticket. Please see the following Egencia instructions for info on how to book your flight through Egencia.
