IKEA Shopping Trip for New International Graduate/Professional Students

IKEA Shopping Trip

Description: Join us for a day of shopping at one of the most popular stores around. IKEA is one big store filled with thousands of items for kitchen, living or bedrooms, and more. The store covers 311,000 square feet, of home furnishings.

Though you can store small to medium size items you buy in the baggage compartment of the bus for the trip back to Ann Arbor, remember you will have to transport anything you buy home from the meeting location on campus so try to limit your items and be aware of the size of the things you buy to leave space for others. Depending on the time of the day, the lines at Ikea for check-out and delivery service might be long so be sure to give yourself plenty time. If you miss the bus at Ikea, you will have to find a taxi to get back to campus on your own.

Cost: Free transportation and pre-registration is required. Registration information will be sent to new international graduate students via email a few days before the event. If you are unable to register, you may still come though there is no guarantee that you will be able to go. Upon return to Ann Arbor, you will be dropped off at the same meeting location.

Registration information will be sent to new international graduate students via email.
