There are 2 universities in Ottawa (Carleton and Ottawa U), so be sure to specify which one you're going to.

If you are taking a taxi, you will have no problem walking out the airport door and getting one. There will be a lineup of empty taxis waiting for passengers.

It really does depend on which University and how much luggage. Carleton U would be very quick (cheap) taxi ride up the Airport Parkway, which goes right by the school. If it is Ottawa U and you don't have a lot of bags, the # 97 bus has a stop downtow callecd"Campus" and there you are.
