Travelling to Pollock Halls by City Car Club

University staff and students can join City Car Club for business or personal use at a significantly discounted rate. A City Car Club car is located at Pollock Halls near to the main entrance.

City Car Club provides a cost effective, short-term, self service car hire service, without the need to go to a rental location to pick up a car. It is a cost effective alternative to owning a car, removing the hassle of ownership and an effective way of reducing your carbon footprint.

Becoming a member of the City Car Club allows you to drive a new car, from over 100 at specified locations throughout Edinburgh. University staff and students can use the City Car Club for business or personal use.

Car clubs are a relatively new concept. The car club owns, maintains and insures a fleet of cars which members can book by the hour, day or longer.

The car club pays for all the tax, insurance, servicing, cleaning and even fuel - members aren’t liable for any running costs.

Whether you are using the car for going to a meeting, visiting friends, going to the shops or going on a trip, City Car Club can provide a car for you!

To use City Car Club, all you need to do is:

  1. Register with Edinburgh City Car Club using the discount code.
  2. Jump in the car.
  3. Enter your pin number.
  4. Drive away.


If you wish to use City Car Club for business use and for personal use, you will need to register twice. This is to ensure that separate accounts are created so that the University is billed for business use, and you are billed for personal use.

Whether you have personal or business membership, you have access to all the City Car Club cars in Edinburgh as well as in other cities.
