The Fleet Services section has partnered with two car-share companies to make vehicles available on UQ campuses.

Cars are supplied by GoGet on St Lucia and Herston campuses. Before you hire a car, you have to become a GoGet member.

There are three types of membership for UQ staff and students:

UQ students GoGet membership UQ staff business use GoGet membership UQ staff personal use GoGet membership

Cars can only be driven by the registered driver on the booking. If you let any other driver use the vehicle, your insurance will become void and you may have to pay the full cost of any vehicle replacement.

UQ students

UQ students can access special rates through the GoGet website. Once you’ve completed the membership form, GoGet will post you a smart membership card.

Delivery can take a few days. If you need to hire a GoGet car urgently, email vehicles@pf.uq.edu.au.

UQ staff business use

To use a GoGet car for official UQ business, check with corporate credit card holders in your area to see if a GoGet account already exists.

You need a departmental GoGet account or a GoGet account set up by corporate credit card to use the service.

Staff business accounts can:

  • nominate other UQ staff as GoGet users
  • order GoGet smartcards for each user
  • access monthly invoices and activity reports with trip comments
  • park in dedicated bays on campus.

Cars can be booked both in Queensland and interstate. Cleaning, fuel, maintenance, parking and insurance are all included.

GoGet standard excess is $2000. There is a reduced liability option that reduces the excess to $300. It costs $1.75 an hour, up to a maximum of $18 per day. 

If you have any questions, email:
