Outdoor Gear Rental
Get the gear you need to get outside
The Adventure Program rents out a variety of outdoor equipment so you can adventure on your own. Our staff will help you figure out what you need and show you how to use it. We also provide trip planning assistance.

Eligibility: All UMD students, faculty, and staff are eligible to rent equipment from the RecWell Adventure Program. Rental equipment is also available to all RecWell members.

The Adventure Program rental desk and resource center are located in the lower level of the Eppley Recreation Center. The entrance is near lot SS2. If at the main entrance to the ERC, go down the stairs between the ERC and the Outdoor Aquatic Center. The door to the Adventure Program will be on your right.
In an attempt to minimize the potential spread of COVID-19, formal recreation is being suspended while the university is virtual. As a result, the rental desk and resource center will be closed through April 12.
