Zipcar at Clemson University

Fast. Convenient. Affordable. Environmentally friendly.

With Zipcar on campus, it just got easier to live without a car.

Need a car? Borrow a Zipcar! Clemson University has partnered with Zipcar to bring self-service, on-demand car sharing to the area. To use Zipcars, simply register as a member, reserve a car online or by phone, use your Zipcard to enter the car, and drive away. Return the car to the same location where you picked it up.

As a member, you get:

  • Access to Zipcars 24/7.

  • Discounted hourly rates for Clemson University faculty, staff and students age 18 and older: rates start at just $7.50 per hour.

  • Gas, insurance, and maintenance are included for free.

  • Students join for only $15 a year – that’s $10 off, thanks to Ford!

Clemson CarShare Club by Zipcar 2020-21

Choose to join the Clemson CarShare Club by Zipcar instead of bringing your personal car to campus and you will receive FREE membership plus 35 hours’ worth of driving credit for the school year (equivalent to $300!) that can be used to drive anywhere. Select “Car Share Club" as the Clemson promotion when you join. Note that the enrollment period for the 2020-2021 CarShare Club has ended. The enrollment period for 2020-2021 ended at 11:59 PM on Monday, September 21.

In order to qualify, you must be a current student without a car on campus (no Clemson University parking permit). If you decide to bring your personal car to campus at a later time, you must cancel your CarShare Club membership and purchase a parking permit at the prorated cost. Any remaining account credits will be removed at that time, but you may still continue to use Zipcar as a general member.


Departmental Accounts

The Zipcars on campus aren't just for students. They can be used as an alternative to the motor pool or personal cars for employees in your department. If you think Zipcar might work for your department or you’d like to learn more, submit a request form and a Zipcar representative will be in touch to answer your questions.  Get your department zipping today!
