Taking your own adventure? From sleeping bags and climbing shoes, to kayaks and stand up paddle boards, the UREC Adventure Equipment Center has everything you need to conquer the great outdoors!

How to Rent Equipment

1) When to Rent: Visit the Adventure Center in person during Rental Hours. No reservations will be taken over the phone or online and equipment is available on a first come, first serve basis. 

2) Pick Up & Drop Off: When picking up and dropping off large equipment, please use the Adventure Center exterior pick up parking space on the east side of UREC by driving down Driver Drive (drive underneath the land bridge), and just past the boat yard. You must have a permit to park in this space. For small items, you can also pick them up in the Adventure Center by entering through the UREC Welcome Center. Note: bicycles, boats, and other large pieces of equipment are not permitted to be carried through UREC and must be checked out via the exterior pick up area. 

3) Payment: In order to rent equipment you must have an active membership through UREC and a JAC or URAC with FLEX on it. At check out, you will pay all applicable rental fees using FLEX

4) Returning Equipment: Cleaning fees and additional fees will be assessed within one week of returning gear. Additional fees may include: extra cleaning, mismatched gear, missing gear, etc.
