With Zipcar on campus, it just got easier to live without a car.

Need a car? Borrow a Zipcar! The university has partnered with the C-U Mass Transit District and the cities of Urbana and Champaign to bring self-service, on-demand car sharing to the area.

As a member you get:

  • Access to Zipcars 24/7.
  • Discounted hourly rates for the University of Illinois faculty, staff and students age 18 and older - as low as $8 per hour.

Hassle-free driving around campus

As an Orientation Leader at the University of Illinois, you’ll get tons of questions from students, and you want to have all the answers. When someone asks how they’ll survive on campus without a car, tell them about Zipcar. Zipcar is a car- sharing service on campus that allows 18+ students access to cars by the hour or the day, gas and insurance included.

The best part? Zipcar is even offering Orientation Leaders a free first-year membership to give the Zipcars on campus a try.
