Equipment Rental

The Adventure Outings Equipment Room is renting gear!

The Equipment Room is open! We will be accepting online reservation requests for gear pickup (by appointment only) on Fridays between 11am-4pm and gear return (by appointment only) on Mondays between 11am-4pm. Currently, we are only allowing weekend rentals. 

To rent gear, please follow the steps below: 

  1. Fill out the reservation request form. A reservation request must be submitted 24 hours prior to your pickup date to ensure completion of the reservation process. All requests submitted after that time frame will not be guaranteed to be completed.
  2. You will receive a follow-up email confirming the availability of gear and to specify a pickup time on the selected day of pickup.
  3. Respond to this follow up email, and select a pickup time. Pickup times are by set appointment, so please be on time.
  4. You will receive a summary of the reservation request AND an invoice for rental fee. Pay the invoice via debit/credit card. Payment must be completed before the day of pickup to complete the reservation. An unpaid invoice on the day of pickup will void the reservation. 
  5. To pick up your gear, arrive at the back alley entrance of the Equipment Room on the specified date and time. The back entrance is located in the alley between the WREC and the railroad tracks. Directions at: Enter the alley from 2nd Street.
