Welcome to the Fleet Services


What is the Fleet Services?

Fleet Services provides vehicle services in support of the University of Washington. We achieve our mission through exceptional customer service, competitive pricing, entrepreneurial spirit, and sustainable business practices. Vehicle mileage and rental rates are adjusted annually to reflect the cost of operations, new vehicle acquisition, and vehicle maintenance. We are a self-sustaining organization and rental rates are set at a level that recovers only the cost of doing business. Our goals include continuous customer service and operational excellence that improves accountability, competitiveness, produces cost savings and achieves environmentally sustainable results.

I've Never Used Fleet Services before.

If you are a University staff, student or faculty member, you can rent vehicles for official University business. All you need is a UW NET ID and a six digit UW budget number. When you click here as a new user you will be prompted to take Fleet Services Basic Driver Training and agree to Fleet Services policies. After completing basic driver training and agreeing to Fleet Services policies you will then be directed to our reservations page. You are also required to review Fleet Services Program Procedures.

What type of vehicle can I rent?

We have a large variety of vehicles. Vehicles range from compacts, hybrids, utility vehicles, and 4x4 vehicles. For more information for types of vehicles click here.

Where are you located and where can I pick up vehicles?

We are located at 4659 25th Ave NE directly across from the west University Village entrance. A lot of Fleet Services rental vehicles can be picked up through Fleets 24/7 rental system called UCAR which is located at multiple locations around campus, but full size vans and utility vehicles need to be picked up from the office.
