Reserving a Van


Alliance University leases 8 vans for use by any approved Student, Faculty or Staff groups who are participating in Alliance University sanctioned events. Four vans are high roof vans that are parked in the 150 Bay Street parking lot and four are low roof vans located in the Columbus Garage.  Each van is equipped with an EZpass.  The vans parked in the Parking Garage have a white access card which is used to enter and exit the parking garage.  All vans in the parking garage are to be parked on the 6th floor and all should be backed in. 

Van distribution and use is facilitated by the Athletic Department administration . Priority will be given to groups that request vans in a timely manner and by priority of the trip.

The following steps need to be followed in order to reserve a van.

1) Each group on campus needs to have their potential drivers complete the Driver Registration form ANNUALLY in order to drive an Alliance University Van. It is the responsibility of any group who would like to use a van to have drivers that are affiliated with their group.


2) The group that is interested in using a van must email AND at least two weeks prior to the date of the event. This still does not necessarily mean a van will be available.  Details that need to be included in the email are:

  • Date of the event
  • Description of the event
  • Location of the event
  • Time the van is needed
  • Name of the Certified Driver from your department
  • Plan for pick up of van and return of van.

3) Upon approval of the use of an Alliance University Van, a communication email will be sent to the person who requested the van.  Instructions and arrangements for picking up the keys as well as facilitating the return of the van will be outlined in that email.  Failure to follow the policy will result in the loss of use of Alliance University vans. All vans need to be returned clean and with a full tank.
