Equipment Checkout

The Wellness Center’s equipment checkout program allows students to plan their own outdoor recreation adventures while staying on budget!

Equipment will be reserved on a first-come, first-served basis. Bring your valid FSC ID to check out equipment at the wellness center front desk. To return camping gear, a second appointment will be made at the time of checkout to allow time to set up equipment for return inspection.

Although these services are free to students, charges will apply if equipment is damaged or lost.

Please call or stop by to be sure equipment is available and to arrange a time to discuss the safe use and care of the equipment.

Sporting equipment, tailgate games and hammocks may be checked out for 48 hours at a time. Camping equipment may be checked out for 72 hours. If an extension is needed, please contact the membership services coordinator.
