Mission: To promote personal growth and healthy relationships in our community through adventure-based experiences. 

outdoor equipmentEquipment Reservation Policy:

Equipment is not considered “reserved” until full payment is received. Campus Recreation reserves the right to rent equipment on a first come first serve basis. Generally, most equipment is available in sufficient quantities but it cannot be guaranteed.

Equipment is rented on a daily (up to 24 hours), weekend (48-72 hours) and weekly (7 days) timeframe. The minimum rental period is daily (24 hours). If a longer rental is required, it will be at the block rate plus the number of days beyond that block rate.


Equipment can be rented from Myers Fieldhouse 118 Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Advance reservation not necessary but recommended. To fill out a rental agreement, stop by MF 118 or print out and return the appropriate form. At this time all transactions require the use of a rental invoice and go through the MSU Cashiers office.
