Home » Gear Rentals
A variety of camping equipment is available for rent at a nominal fee. To rent equipment, a Vanderbilt student or faculty/staff ID card must be presented. (Alumni may also rent, at slightly higher fees.) All rental fees must be paid at the time of the reservation or check out via cash or check or the VANDERBILT CARD. (Sorry, we cannot accept charge cards or debit cards.)
Additional fines will be assessed for late, damaged, lost, stolen or excessively dirty equipment. The renter takes full responsibility for the equipment signed out in his or her name. Late fees are the same amount as renting the gear for more days.
Equipment may be reserved up to 30 days in advance. No phone reservations are accepted. To place a reservation, renters must come in person to reserve and pay for the equipment in full. A reservation must be cancelled more than 42 hours in advance to receive a full refund and 18-42 hours in advance for a 50% refund. Cancellations made less than 18 hours in advance will receive no refund.
Call 343-8182 or stop by the Outdoor Recreation Center, located on Children’s Way, behind the Student Recreation Center, for more information.
ORC HOURS: Monday and Friday: 12 noon – 6 PM, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday: 3-6 PM.
