Submit a Request for a CSJ Van

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.
