How to Rent a Tent from the Outdoor Recreation Center:

1. Arrive at the Outdoor Recreation Center between the hours of 12 p.m. and 8 p.m., Monday through Friday, or between 4 p.m. and 8 p.m. on Sunday. Rentals must be done in person.

2. Present ORC Desk Staff with your student ID card for rental eligibility verification. Students, faculty, staff, and Campus Recreation Services members are able to rent equipment.

3. Complete rental contract form, which includes providing your local address, telephone number, and student ID number. The contract also requires you read the terms of the rental and to give your signature as verification of your agreement.

4. Choose which tent would best suit your recreation needs and inform the Desk Staff of your choice. The choices include a 2 person backpacking tent ($6.00), a 4 person backpacking tent ($7.00), a 2 person camping tent ($5.00), and a 4 person camping tent ($7.00).

5. Decide how long you will be renting the tent for, and inform the Desk Staff of your decision.

6. Pay for the tent rental with cash, check, or credit card (Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted). Note that prices are given per night rented, excluding Saturday night as the ORC is closed on that day.

7. When returning your tent, help the Desk Staff to assemble it in the back room for airing, and to check for any damages or excessive dirt. If damages or excessive dirt are found, you may be asked to pay a fee in compensation. You may also be charged a late fee if you do not return your tent by the date you stated on your rental contract.
