Vehicle Reservations

Q: How do I reserve a vehicle?
A1: If you are not an approved driver you need to submit the completed and signed Driver Authorization form found here, along with a copy of your driver’s license to the Facilities Office located in the basement of the Lang Art building. We will submit the paperwork on your behalf and notify you when you have become an approved driver. This process usually takes less than 24 hours.

A2: If you are an approved driver, you can reach out to the DOS Office of Student Engagement to inquire about reserving a vehicle. Once the vehicle is reserved, you can pick up your keys and your check out/in card from the Facilities Office located in the basement of the Lang Art building.

We encourage everyone to pay attention to whether or not you use toll roads and to visit tollroads.com and promptly pay any fees. Tollroads.com allows three (3) business days to pay the fee (usually only about $3.00) before it becomes a $25-$50 fine that is added to your student account.

You are also responsible for replacing any gas used in your travels. Please refer to the Vehicle Policy here.

You are encouraged to attend this meeting regardless of the size of your event.
