Academic requests originate from a faculty member or authorized staff member in support of class field trips and/or other academic/research oriented purposes. Athletic use originates from a coach and is approved by the Athletic Director or an Associate Athletic Director. Administrative requests come from faculty or authorized staff member and are approved by an account executive, in support of various administrative activities. Lehigh students are allowed access to vehicles for various student life-related purposes.

Vehicles may be used for University business purposes only. The use of University vehicles or the use of Transportation Services personnel to obtain a vehicle from an outside vendor for personal use is not permitted.

The University community is encouraged to make vehicle reservations as far in advance as possible. This is particularly important for reservations requiring the services of a driver.
