Estate Services provides vehicle rental services to support teaching and research activities in University College Dublin.
A wide range of vehicles are available for rental to all Schools and Units through Estate Services. The vehicles are available from Belfield Campus to qualified and authorised drivers complying with the UCD Vehicle Policy.
All the information you need to plan your vehicle requirement is provided on this website, but if you need further information please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
COVID -19 – Please be aware that due Covid restrictions, at the moment all vehicles in the UCD Transport Pool are available for single occupancy only. For more information on this topic please refer to point 6.3 (University Vehicles and Transport Pool) of the Return to Campus Working document.
The University Transport Pool has recommenced services in recent weeks. The nature of the vehicles in the pool do not allow for appropriate physical distancing for multiple occupants. It may, however, be possible to provide vehicles for research trips for research groups who are working in ‘pods’ and who wear PPE (masks etc.) when in the vehicle. The provision of individual vehicles for members of research groups is not viable with current resourcing.
Valeting, to incorporate sanitisation of touch points, of the vehicles has been implemented and will require breaks between bookings to allow this cleaning to take place.
In compliance with physical distancing and carpooling guidelines the University’s Central Transport Pool will not be able to provide vehicles for class field trips.
