Outdoor Equipment Rental

Campus Recreation offers a variety of outdoor equipment for rental by DePaul students, faculty/staff, community and Blue members.

Renting Outdoor Equipment

You may choose one of two ways to rent outdoor equipment:

  1. Complete and Submit the Outdoor Equipment Request Form.
    • Submission of request does NOT guarantee a reservation.
    • A reservation is not approved until the requester receives a confirmation email, which occurs during the next outdoor rental hours, after a credit card is charged and on file on the member's account.

  2. Rent the equipment in-person at The Ray during Outdoor Rental Center hours (April through September): During peak rental months, select hours are available for patrons to speak with an attendant and rent equipment (subject to availability) without a reservation. Without advance notice, the checkout process may take up to 45 minutes while the attendant examines equipment. You MUST HAVE a valid credit card on your account to rent equipment. 
  3. Hours:
    October-March rentals are available by submitting a rental request form a minimum of 48 hours in advance of requested rental dates.
