  • Steps for Rental

    Great, you are ready to rent some equipment, but now what do you do? Simply, follow the steps below:

    1. Review the Equipment Rental Policies.
    2. Plan the trip, and develop a list of equipment that might be needed.
      • Our trained Outdoor Adventures staff can help renters with this. Access, permitting, menu planning - we have done it all. Stop by the OAC for latest and greatest information.
    3. Reserve your equipment.
      • The renter may reserve equipment the day of, or up to two weeks in advance.
        • You have the option of reserving equipment in-person, or via an online form located in the bottom box of this page.
      • Equipment availability is subject to change, please call ahead / stop by to confirm availability.
      • The OAC tests all equipment prior to transaction to ensure it is complete and in working order. It is the renter’s responsibility to double-check this process and ask OA staff any clarifying questions prior to departure.
    4. Stop by CHP, Room #112 during business hours to pay for all rental costs.
      • While you are paying, the OAC staff will review the renter’s equipment and put it all together.  When the renter returns with a payment receipt, they will be able to pick up their equipment for the rental period.
    5. Have fun, be respectful, stay safe while enjoying your adventure.
    6. After returning from this epic experience, immediately set up any equipment, allow it to dry off, inspect it for dirt and damage.
      • Please, return all equipment clean and dry.  If the renter notices any dirt, they should follow the documentation that came with it on how to properly clean it. 
      • DO NOT USE ANY ABRASIVE CLEANING CHEMICALS.  At most, use a damp sponge with a small amount of dish detergent.
      Return the clean and dry equipment to the OAC at least thirty minutes prior to closing.  It will take some time to check-in the equipment; so, plan accordingly.
      • If the equipment comes back on time and clean, the transaction will be completed.
      • If the equipment comes back dirty, damaged, or late, the OAC staff will review the equipment, and assess any damages / fees necessary. This transaction will be reviewed by the Graduate Assistant for Outdoor Adventures, and the renter will be contacted with additional information.
    7. Tell everyone how you reached the summit, survived that storm, or had just a relaxing time hanging out. Share your epic story with the OAC staff and with UREC on Facebook
    8. Repeat steps 1 - 8.
