You can have wheels when you want them with Zipcar's car-sharing program. There are five cars available on campus, 24/7, to be reserved by the hour or day. Zipcar is car sharing, an alternative to car rental and car ownership that gives you the freedom to take a car when you want it, and put it back when you’re done. This program makes it easy to get off campus whenever you need to while avoiding the hassles and expense of owning a car and finding parking on campus.  For more information go to 


We encourage students not to bring a car their first year as parking is limited. However, if you are looking into it this option the parking services website provides more information about permits and parking meters.  Also, check out our discounted round-trip bus transportation from Arcata directly to San Francisco or Los Angeles.  Service is offered for Fall Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break. Visit HSU's Homeward Bound.
