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.
