Use of University Vehicles

University vehicles are available for use by suitably licensed and qualified drivers in the undertaking of University Business. All University vehicles carry a Logbook which must be legibly completed by the driver of the vehicle for all trips undertaken by the vehicle irrespective of the distance travelled.

General Use and Pool Vehicles operated by the University are allocated to drivers on a 'first come - first served' basis. Staff are encouraged to explore all alternatives to the use of a University vehicle before booking a pool vehicle. Such alternatives include:

  • Phone and Video Conferencing
  • Use of public transport
  • Reallocation of resources to reduce the need to travel between campuses

Where travel by vehicle is the only possible method then staff are encouraged to book a vehicle well in advance of their travel date. Where a vehicle is unavailable then other arrangements for a vehicle can be made with a University preferred Rental Car provider for the provision of a vehicle.

Please refer to the Fleet Policy for additional information.
