Rental Agreement

Renters are required to complete and submit the rental agreement form prior to receiving their requested items. This form can be completed on-site in the Bike Shop and Outdoor Center. 

Group rentals: Groups must designate one point-person to sign the rental agreement who will be responsible for lost or damaged equipment. 

Rental equipment pickup/drop-off

Reserved equipment should be picked up and dropped off at the Bike Shop and Outdoor Center on Fridays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m.* Please have your payment receipt and nautilus card ready as you will need this to pick up your reserved equipment.

To ensure the longevity of our equipment so that future Argos can enjoy it, please properly clean, dry, and pack rental gear prior to returning.

*Hours of operation may change due to the university and holiday closures.


Visit the lower fitness center desk at the Health, Leisure and Sports Facility (Building 72) and present your active Nautilus Card along with payment at the time of pickup. Rental fees are non-refundable after pickup.

Penalty Fees

Fees will be charged to the responsible party’s university account if the equipment is not returned on time, returned damaged, or returned excessively dirty. Repair, replacement and cleaning fees are determined on a case-by-case basis by the Outdoor Adventure Administrative Staff. Equipment that is returned late will be subject to late fees accrued daily up to the amount of the replacement cost. Individuals who fail to follow rental procedures will become ineligible to rent equipment in the future.
