Rental Center

The Rental Center is the hub for all things outdoors. Students and employees have access to a large inventory of equipment at affordable prices. Rent a tent, sleeping bag and stove for a weekend trip in the mountains. Try out a stand-up paddleboard and kayak for some time on the river. How about a snowshoe trip to Mt. Hood with winter gear? Or just stop by for a Frisbee, slackline and hammock for those sunny days on the quad!

University Recreation staff are excited to help you get the appropriate equipment and point you in the right direction for any outdoor adventure!
