Cars at Eddington

E-Car Club

The University has partnered with E-Car Club, a low-emission car club to enable Eddington site users to hire a car for short periods of time.

E-Car Club vehicles are parked at Eddington, giving residents access to a car when they need it – perfectly maintained without the hassle or expense of ownership.

Eddington residents benefit from free membership and two hours of drive time.

Located across Cambridge (including in car parking spaces on University sites) you will also be able to find Zipcars. University staff can use the vehicles for travelling at work or for personal use.
