Zipcar at Hampshire College

Since 2010 Hampshire College has worked in partnership with Zipcar Inc., providing the campus with access to the world's leading car-sharing service. This cost-effective and convenient transportation option is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week to all students, faculty, and staff members, ages 18 and older, and to community members over the age of 21.

Gas, insurance, reserved parking spots, up to 180 miles per day, and roadside assistance are included in the hourly and daily Zipcar rates. Cars can be reserved for as little as an hour or for up to four days. Cars are self-service; they can be easily reserved and accessed 24 hours a day. Hampshire College Zipcars are located in convenient spaces in high-demand areas. Two vehicles are located in the parking lot behind the Library next to the bus stop.

18+ students, faculty and staff have access to over 12,000+ vehicles in 30+ markets, 50+ airports and 450+ universities nationwide. Zipcar strives to deliver on its promise of  “wheels when you want them,” with vehicles where students live, work, and travel.
