Co-wheels car club gives University of Sunderland staff free and exclusive access to the on-site Co-wheels car for university business, from 08:00-18:00, Monday to Friday.

It's a great alternative to using your own cars for work purposes and ideal for travel for short meetings between campuses and in the local area.

Help us make the scheme work for everyone:

The car can be booked in 30-minute slots, and we want to make the most of it, so please use the car for 1 or 2 hours only, if travelling between campuses, or up to 3 hours if within the local area*, to give everyone a chance to use it.

The Co-wheels car is available for members of the public to use outside of office hours, in addition to more cars throughout the North East.

*"Local area" is considered to be within an approximate 15-mile radius of Sunderland
