Yes, we want to help everyone enjoy the outdoors. Please see our equipment rental page for current options and rates.
Any currently enrolled student or faculty/staff paying the Campus Recreation fee will

For most items, reservations are accepted the “week of” the rental period. Call us
the Monday prior to your adventure and we'll be happy to get you the gear you need.
Exceptions: rafts and bikes can be reserved starting the last Monday of March for
anytime during the season until November.
If equipment is damaged upon return, you will be responsible for repair or replacement.
If you’re not able to get your equipment back to us on time, please call ahead and
pay for an additional day. If you fail to return your equipment on time, you will
be charged an additional day plus a late fee.
We have a set number of oar frames and dry boxes for our rafts. So we don’t rent out
oar frame equipment separately.
Our trips are only open to current students, faculty, and staff at the University
of Utah and their guests. See the schedule for this semester's trips,

Cooperative Adventure trips are planned and coordinated by Outdoor Adventures trip
leaders. Trip costs are shared equally by all participants. All group planning, leadership
and risks are shared by all participants equally. Because Outdoor Adventures trips
are exciting, physically demanding, and take place in an environment over which we
have no control, they can be potentially dangerous. As a participant on a Cooperative
Adventure Trip, you must personally accept these conditions and assume full responsibility
for your own safety and well-being. Trip size is limited, and registration plus payment
is on a first come, first served basis. A non-refundable deposit is required when
you sign up to secure a spot for you. Each multi-day trip has a pre-trip meeting,
and your attendance is strongly recommended.
