Vehicle Pool

The University of Cambridge is an institution located over several sites spread throughout the city of Cambridge, which can frequently cause logistical difficulties for members of staff.  

The School of the Biological Sciences Vehicle Pool is located and managed in the Department of Biochemistry, providing School staff members with access to a fleet of vehicles to suit all of their needs. Vehicles are available for the transportation of a variety of loads, ranging from small packages to large or heavy items. Seven-seater family cars can also be hired to enable group travel, for University business, within Cambridge or further afield. The Facility aims to provide an efficient and effortless service, with use of the vehicles requiring only the completion of a straightforward application form, offering a simple and effective solution to the transit of School staff and their goods.
