Outdoor Recreation

Equipment Rentals

The ORC has a variety of camping and outdoor equipment available for rental at very low costs. Tents range from small two person backing packing tents to large six person car camping tents. Tents are not the only thing in stock, so if you need a stove, cooking equipment, sleeping pads, sleeping bags, lanterns, backpacks, headlamps, flashlights, mess kits, or anything else, come visit the staff in the ORC. View the complete rental item listing and rental rates below.

 All reservations and rentals must be made in person during the Outdoor Resource Center hours. The ORC is located inside the main Campus Recreation Center on the lower floor, REC 013.
