Calvin has two preferred partners for auto rentals. Both will deliver vehicles to Calvin.

Individuals who need to drive a university-owned vehicle or a rental vehicle for official Calvin business must be an authorized driver. If you’re not already authorized to drive, please complete the: Calvin Authorized Driver Request Form

Autos, SUVs, minivans

For best rates for autos (including SUVs and minivans) book your auto through Enterprise/National.


Passenger vans

For best rates for 12–15 passenger vans, please book through Budget.


Once your vehicle is confirmed (with either Enterprise or Budget), here is important information:

Delivery and keys

  • Keys will be picked up and returned at the key kiosk located in the Print and Mail Services building inside the lobby at the bottom of the stairs leading to Campus Safety.

  • The vehicle will be delivered to Calvin in the north end of Lot 8.

  • Enterprise delivers cars Monday–Friday. Your rental charge will begin at the end of the business day on which they deliver it.

    • Please note: This is especially relevant if you are choosing to have a car delivered that you need before business hours on a Monday morning, as charges will begin already at 5:00 p.m. Friday. In this situation, you may choose, instead to pick up your vehicle at the airport rental location, or price compare with Budget.

  • Before you depart with your vehicle, please check it inside and out for anything that could be considered damage. Look for scratches, dents, loose parts, working power windows, etc. If anything is found, please take pictures or video so that there is documentation before your departure. Keep photos/videos for at least 6 months for documentation purposes.

  • Upon return of a vehicle that has been delivered to campus, please email Enterprise at the address listed on the cover sheet of your final rental agreement so they know to close your contract and end charges.

  • All vehicles must be returned with a FULL TANK. If rental agency refuels, the price per gallon is nearly double.

  • Drivers must be 21 years of age to operate a large 12–15 passenger van or large SUV.
