Vehicle Rentals

Types of Services

Michigan Technological University manages a fleet of safe and properly maintained vehicles. Forty-seven vehicles are available for rental by full- and part-time faculty and staff members for official University business. Students or guests may also be assigned a vehicle when it is to the advantage of the University.

Effective April 1, 2013 our rental charges have been revised to become more competitive.  We now charge a flat daily rental fee. The daily rate now includes unlimited mileage and it will be the responsibility of the lessee to purchase their own fuel.  Reimbursement for fuel costs should be listed on the Michigan Tech travel voucher along with other travel expenses. The monthly rate has decreased, however it will be the lessee's responsibility to purchase their own fuel.
