Car Share


Zipcar is a carshare service that gives faculty, students staff (who are 18 years+) access to vehicles for trips on and off-campus.  Use Zipcar as an alternative to the costs and hassles of owning or renting a car through a network of shared on-demand vehicles.  Each membership allows users to rent a car with gas, insurance, maintenance, and 180 miles/day included in every reservation. Vehicles are able to be booked via app or through the website by the hour or day. 

Zipcars are self-service with easy to use mobile app keys and booking systems.  The cars are available 24/7, and live right on campus in Parking Lots 5 and 8 (coming soon) (see Campus Map). Other off-street parking Zipcars can also be found at BLVD 63 and Sterling Alvarado Apartments.

If you are interested in becoming a Zipster you can join at approved, you can book cars instantly with the Zipcar app.

Not a student?/Faculty, student leader, alumni or staff?  If you’re affiliated with San Diego State University, you may still be eligible for a discount on your Zipcar membership.
