Of course you can rent gear from us, we want to help everyone get outside. The prices listed on our equipment rental page is what you’ll pay.

Any current student or faculty/staff paying the Campus Recreation fee will receive a 25% discount to the listed prices.

For most things we only take reservations “week-of” the rental period. To be clear, we said “week-of” and NOT “week-before.” Call us the Monday prior to your adventure and we’ll get you hooked up with the gear you need.

The only exception to that rule is raft and bike rentals. Rafts and bikes can be reserved starting the last Monday of March for anytime during the season until November.

Thanks for owning up to your accident. That’s never any fun to have to own up to something you broke, especially when you don’t own it. And we hate having to be the bad guy, but you ARE responsible for any damaged or lost gear.

If you’re not able to get your equipment back to us on time call ahead and pay for the additional day. If you fail to get it to us on time you will be charged the 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. Sorry, but we need that gear for our raft packages.
Our trips are only open to current students, faculty, and staff at the University of Utah and their guest. Sorry, but rules are rules.
See the schedule for this semester's trips,
Call us at 801-581-8516 and pay the deposit with a credit card over the phone, or come to see us during our office hours within the Student Life Center.

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.

University of Utah policies prohibit alcohol, controlled substances, and firearms. These items are not permitted on any OA Adventure.
