Outdoor Gear Rental

How To Get Your Gear

LSU UREC has the gear you need for your next outdoor adventure.

UREC Adventure Education provides outdoor rental items including everything you would need for kayaking, backpacking, canoeing, or camping.

LSU students, UREC members, and the community may rent equipment on a daily basis.

For more information on rentals, please call the Adventure Center at 225-578-3431.

Review the policies below prior to making an outdoor equipment reservation.

Rental Policy

No rental equipment may leave the UREC Adventure Center until it is paid in full.

For LSU students, the presentation of a LSU student ID is required for rental. For UREC members, a valid UREC member card must be presented and for community members, driver’s license is required.

Equipment must be returned complete and in good working order. If equipment is lost, stolen, damaged, destroyed, or late, fees will be assessed accordingly. Fees must be paid within three business days of assessment, or the Department of University Recreation may refer all outstanding/delinquent fees to the Office of Bursar Operations in order to collect such indebtedness.

  • Late and excessively dirty/wet equipment will be charged 1.5 times the daily rental rate for each day late.
