Reservation and Billing Policies:

  2. Billing amounts will be based upon the hours/days for which the vehicle has been reserved and signed out.
  3. Per-day rentals do not include fuel; vehicles returned with less than a full tank will incur additional fueling charges.
  4. Credit for early return of a vehicle will not exceed the rate for one hour's use of that vehicle.
  5. Late return of a vehicle may result in double charge for each hour/day or portion thereof beyond the time for which the vehicle was signed out.

*Academic trips to the Verbrugge property as authorized through the biology department have priority claim to Van 7. Other departments’ use of Van 7 will be permitted only when the Biology department does not need it and/or when 4WD is necessary and/or when no other vans are available.

Cancellation Policy:

Users are asked to cancel motor pool reservations a minimum of two days before the scheduled pick-up/departure time. Reservations that are not canceled or that are cancelled after the two-day advance deadline may incur a cancellation fee of $10.


Licensing Requirements:
  1. Any person (faculty, staff, student worker or university guest) intending to drive a university vehicle must have a valid driver's license and must meet the requirements of the university's insurance company. Verification of this compliance must be on file with the Facilities Services Office before anyone will be allowed to drive a university vehicle.
  2. Please note: If the driver has more than two accidents or moving violations on his/her record in the last three years, he or she is not eligible to drive a university-owned vehicle.
  3. Passenger vans may only be operated by drivers certified by Facilities Services in accordance with the Campus Vehicle Policy. Please provide at least 2 weeks’ advance notice if van training is required before your trip.
  4. The Car and Minivan (7-passenger) do not require van driver certification, but all larger passenger vans require a driving test in addition to online training.

Operation of vehicles for official university business must be in compliance with the Campus Vehicle Policy; if you have questions about your eligibility to drive please contact Facilities Services.
