Rental Gear


Rentals are conducted by appointment. Use the rental form to set up your rental and appointment.

Gear Pick Up and Return

Gear must be picked up and returned to the Outdoor Program office (HWAC 114) during open hours. The office is closed on weekends, college holidays, and when classes are not in session. Email the Outdoor Program (outdoorprogram@westminstercollege.edu) if you have gear rental needs when the office is closed—the program may be able to accommodate.

  • Renters are fully responsible for equipment checked out in their name.
  • Anyone renting gear must sign the Outdoor Program Rental Agreement.
  • Renters may be charged a fee for all equipment returned late, damaged, lost, stolen, dirty, and/or wet.
