How to rent gear

Gear Rental Hours – by appointment
Email before submitting your gear rental request, so we can arrange to be on campus.

Step 1: Submit a rental request

You’ll be sent an email confirming your request.

Step 2: Print your confirmation email

Step 3: Visit the Wellness Center in G114 (by appointment only)

Bring your printed copy of the confirmation email to retrieve your rentals!*

Stop by to complete paperwork, get fitted for your gear and get help with your adventure trip plans.

*Faculty and staff need to visit Student Central first to make payment.


Return your rentals the next day the Wellness Center office is Open — (for example, rent on a Thursday, return the following Tuesday.)
