Rental Process 

Come to Member Services with a list of equipment you would like to rent.  Member Services will then contact the Outdoor Adventures Department to confirm the equipment is available.  Once availability is confirmed, please pay the rental fee and proceed to the Outdoor Adventures Rental Area, located on the far side of the indoor tennis courts behind the red curtain.

 

Rental Returns

During the rental return hours, please bring your gear to the Outdoor Adventures Rental Area, located on the far side of the indoor tennis courts behind the red curtain. At the rental area, you will be greeted by an Outdoor Adventures staff member who will help process your return.

Please remember to do a visual inspection of all equipment with the OA staff member.

If any equipment is lost or returned damaged, your student account will be charged the full replacement cost. For some equipment this could be over $1,000. If you would like to see a list of replacement costs, please ask the Member Services attendant or the Outdoor Adventures representative.


Late Fees

You will be charged the weekend rental fee each day the equipment is not returned unless special arrangements are made with Eli Crispell, the Assistant Director of Outdoor Activities.
