Fleet Services

Fleet Services manages the rental of vehicles to employees and student groups traveling on official university business. Individuals with valid driver’s licenses and cleared by Fleet Services may rent a university-owned vehicle on a first-come, first-served basis to travel within a 300-mile radius of the university.  Cars, eight-passenger vans and 10-passenger vans are available, though individuals wishing to drive a 10-passenger van must complete a Fleet Services training class prior to renting the vehicle. Individuals wishing to travel beyond 300 miles of the university can arrange a non-university rental vehicle with Fleet Services.


The cost of renting a university car, 7/8-passenger van or 10-passenger van is below.  This fee includes re-fueling at the Baltimore County gas station and toll charges for most Maryland toll plazas.

Vehicle Type Rental Cost
Cars $.67/mile
7/8-Passenger Vans $.1.04/mile
10-Passenger Vans $1.33/mile
Gas and Toll Charges

Each university vehicle is equipped with a WEX gas and roadside assistance card, a Baltimore County gas card and an E-ZPass transponder. Instructions on using these materials can be found in each vehicle’s information guide.

Budget/Enterprise Rental Services

Fleet Services will arrange rental vehicles for employees and student groups traveling beyond a 300-mile radius of the university or when a university vehicle is unavailable. Rental arrangements for all commercial vehicles should be processed through Fleet Services by completing and submitting a request form.  Due to rental company policies, some age restrictions may apply. Please note that university employees renting cars for university business should elect not to purchase additional insurance on the vehicle – the liability of vehicles rented to the state is covered by the Maryland Tort Claims Act.
