    Students in Storrs now have cost-effective access to a vehicle without needing to bring a car to campus.

    This semester UConn welcomed the car-sharing service, Zipcar, to campus. The company now has 10 cars on campus, parked in designated spots in several lots, including Northwest Residence Halls, Field House, Whitney Road, Towers Residence Halls, and the Nathan Hale Inn.

    Under the service, the cars are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Students, faculty, and staff ages 18 and older, as well as members of the local community over the age of 21, can reserve them online. The driver picks up the car and returns it to the same space.

    UConn members can currently join for $15, with rates for Zipcar vehicles on campus starting at $7.50 per hour and $69 per day. After the first year, members will pay an annual membership fee of $25. Gas, insurance, and up to 180 miles of driving per day are included in Zipcar rates, and cars can be reserved for as little as an hour or for multiple days.
