Richmond Home


Got places to go, but no wheels?  Want a fast, convenient, affordable and environmentally friendly way to get there?  The University of Richmond has partnered with North America’s largest car-sharing service, Zipcar, to offer our campus community a cost-effective alternative to car ownership.

UR students 18 and older—along with faculty, staff and local residents 21 and older—may reserve a car by the hour or day. Students with Non-US Licenses may be asked to provide additional legal documents. Zipcar offers self-service access to cars 24/7, low hourly and daily rates (which include gas and insurance), a quick online/mobile reservation system and Zipcars conveniently located on campus.
