How to Make Equipment Reservations:

  • The OAP rental shop will be open on a reservation only basis. Patrons must go to to make an appointment for gear pick up and/or return. 
  • All rental transactions will be on a curbside pick-up basis only. No patron access will be allowed in the building. 
  • Curbside access is located on the south side of the Hoke Student Union Building at the loading dock.
  • OAP employees and patrons must maintain 6 feet of physical distance at all times.
  • The OAP strongly encourages all patrons to wear cloth, paper or disposable face coverings. 
  • Hand sanitizer will be available for patrons to use before and after a rental equipment transaction or handling OAP equipment.
  • When returning equipment patrons will be asked to leave gear outside on loading dock for employee to clean, sanitize, and dry before being brought back into the gear room.
  • All rental equipment will be properly sanitized and disinfected when returned. 
  • No sleeping bags will be rented. Other items that cannot be properly sanitized between uses will not be available for rent. Inquire about the availability of rental items.
  • Patrons will be required to load all the rented gear by themselves. Patrons should bring an extra person with them to help them load heavy equipment like rafts. 
  • Patrons will pay by debit or credit card only. Patrons will be encouraged to pay their fee via phone prior to pick-up. If transaction happens at time of pick-up, then OAP employee will initiate transaction inside the rental shop while patron waits outside.

The Outdoor Adventure Program maintains a diverse selection of outdoor equipment that is available to rent by EOU students and staff, and community members from the program office in Hoke Union Building Room 118.

We rent kayaks, rafts, paddle boards, bikes, snowshoes, cross-country skis, backpacks, tents, sleeping bags, camp stoves, water filters, mountaineering equipment, climbing shoes, harnesses, avalanche safety gear, wetsuits, and much more.
