Wheels when you want them.

Conveniently located near residence halls, Zipcar vehicles provide a cost-effective around-the-clock alternative to bringing your car to campus. 

What is Zipcar?

Zipcar is a carsharing service at OSU that gives you all the convenience of a personal vehicle without the parking and maintenance costs. Cars are conveniently parked near residence halls and available to reserve 24 hours/day, via an app or online. The service is available to members age 18 and over.

How does it work?

  1. Visit the Zipcar webpage to sign up for an annual membership at a student discount. You will need a valid driver's license. Most people are approved right away and can start booking trips in minutes.
  2. Book a round trip car by the hour or by the day using the Zipcar app. You will also get a Zipcard in the mail which can unlock cars as well.
  3. When you are ready to drive, use the app or your Zipcard to unlock the vehicle! The keys are inside. Have a great trip! When you are finished, return the car to where you started to end your reservation.

Where can I drive in a Zipcar?

Trips are not limited to any geographic area - you can take Zipcars anywhere the road leads you! Your reservation will remain active until you return the car to the parking spot where you started your trip.

How much does it cost?

See the Zipcar webpage for current membership and reservation rates. With your oregonstate.edu email, you get a discount on your first year of membership.
