Get off the Hilltop!

CSJ uses its 20 vans to get Georgetown students, faculty and staff to community-based partners around the DC-MD-VA area every day. Vans can also be requested by any department, program or unit that has access to benefits. CSJ vans are ideal for a class trip, student organization service project, or residence hall outing.

  • We recommend that you submit a request at least two weeks prior to your requested date.
  • Morning and weekend van requests are more likely to be approved as most of CSJ’s van needs are weekday afternoons and evenings.
  • During peak hours, no more than five vans will be assigned to a group.
  • There are additional fines for not adhering to van policies.

Driver Authorization Process

The driver authorization process consists of two requirements: 1) Online Driver Training; and 2) Van Disclosure and Authorization Form. 

Follow these instructions in order to complete both requirements:

  1. Go to the United Educator's learning site.
  2. Complete the registration using your NetID and/or Georgetown University email address. Once entered into the system you will be taken to the learning portal.
  3. Once in the learning portal, you will see the Driver Safety course. 
  4. Click on "Access Course" under the course title and then follow the prompts to begin the course. The course will take 30 to 45 minutes to complete.
  5. Once you complete the online driver training course, please complete ​Van Disclosure and Authorization Form ​to authorize a Motor Vehicle Report. ​

If you are not sure if you are currently authorized to drive a University vehicle, contact with your full name and netID and we can confirm your authorization status.
