Transportation and Parking Services
Vehicle/Van Rentals
  • The university has six 12-passenger vans that can be reserved by students, faculty and staff for university business only. When these university vans are all reserved, there is also the option of renting vans and other vehicles through Enterprise Rentals. Drivers must be at least 21 years of age and authorized as a driver through Public Safety and Transportation.

    The process for making these reservations is done through the VEMS Reservation System. VEMS is a web-based application that allows you to browse the availability of university vans as well as Enterprise Rental vehicles, submit multiple requests, and arrange your reservations online. To access the rental contract, use the menu to the left.

    Access VEMS:
    - accessible only via campus internet -


    Any current faculty/staff can request access to the VEMS Reservation System. It is ideal if only a few individuals per department coordinate their group’s van bookings, so please consider this with your department before moving forward.

    To request an account, send an e-mail to VanRental@seattleu.eduInclude the following information:
    Name, Job Title, Email, Phone Number, Department, Group/Club Name (if necessary), Budget Number

    Requests are processed within 5 business days, at which point you will receive an e-mail with your username and password.
