Rental & Resource Center

Whether you need help planning a trip or the gear to get you through it, OP is here to help students, faculty, and staff with all their outdoor needs.

Rental Center:

Get the quality, brand-name gear you need from our rental center. Our massive inventory of outdoor equipment ranges from backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags to whitewater kayaks, canoes and even crash pads. So whether you’re camping, climbing, or crushing whitewater waves, we’ve got you covered.

We’ll teach you to use all of our gear so that you can feel confident using it yourself. To rent gear, just come to our Rental Center located in Outdoor Pursuits, 1st Floor of the Wellbeing Center (near the pool).

Resource Center:

Looking for adventure but don’t know where to start? Let us help you get outside!

Come by Outdoor Pursuits anytime we’re open and we’ll help you plan an adventure that suits your skills and comfort level. Whether you want information about local walking trails, the best whitewater rivers, or cool crags for climbing we’ll be there to tell you about our favorite spots.

We can also help if you’re interested in learning more about a given outdoor sport! We can provide sample packing lists, teach you how to fit a backpack or throw a bear hang, and guide you through what it’s like to plan a trip of your own. If you have questions about the outdoors, let us be your guide.
