Booking a vehicle

How to update

1. Booking your vehicle

Guide to booking company vehicles
You can book your vehicle using your Outlook calendar.

  1. Find the desired vehicle's calendar and check that it is available for the entire period you need it (the car can be searched via "add calendar" with keyword ‘bil aarhus arts’)
  2. Select new meeting 
  3. Select date and time
  4. Enter the driver’s name and mobile number in the topic field (‘Emne’). Just name one driver, even if there are several drivers. 
  5. State the purpose of the trip and the destination in the location field (‘Sted’). 
  6. Send the meeting request to the car

Please note:

  • Cars can be booked for a maximum of one week at a time.
  • Remember to update your booking in Outlook if you have to make any changes.
  • If you make an all-day reservation, it is important that you change the vehicle’s status from available (‘ledig’) to reserved (‘optaget’). 
  • If you are experiencing problems with the display of car calendars in Outlook, please contact Arts IT

Are you booking on behalf of others?

If you are a secretary and you are reserving the vehicle on behalf of colleagues and/or students, set up a meeting in the vehicle’s own Outlook calendar and invite the vehicle to the meeting. It is important that you select ‘new meeting’ and not ‘new appointment’ to avoid double bookings.

Driving Permit

Students must bring a driving permit, which must be signed by the head of department or head of secretariat. If more than one person will be driving the car, everyone must fill out a driving permit. Bring the driving permit to the maintenance office (Aarhus) when collecting the keys to the car. One driving permit must be completed per booking.

Where is the car parked?

The car is parked in the underground car park, underneath building 1467. Together with the key, an access card is given, to use for picking up or dropping of the car, outside of opening hours. The access card needs to be scanned at the scanner, labeled Aarhus University (see photo below).  

The car is parked at the parking lot Tuborgvej 164

Fill in the logbook

You will find a logbook in the vehicle. Please fill this in when you return the vehicle. Check whether the previous driver has registered the number of kilometres correctly.

Return your vehicle on time

It is important that the drop-off time is honoured for the next user of the car.

More information

In the vehicle, you will find a QR code located on the dashboard/gloves compartment that refers to information about driving company cars.

Please note: If the vehicle you have booked is in the garage for repairs, Arts Building Services will do everything we can to inform you as soon as possible so you can book another vehicle. If no vehicles are available, you will have to find an alternative solution.

4. Returning your vehicle and the keys

Please return the vehicle at the agreed time. Park it where you found it in the underground car park (Aarhus) or in the car park (Emdrup).

As an employee, you are covered by Aarhus University's occupational injury insurance when travelling in Arts' company cars in Denmark.

Special information for students

Students are not covered by Aarhus University’s industrial injury insurance for employees. Students are therefore encouraged to take out their own accident insurance.
