OAR has a cache of gear used for trips and provides rental opportunities for SU students, staff and faculty. We do not rent to alumni nor non-affiliates. To reserve equipment, renters must complete and sign the Rental Agreement form and pay the entire rental fee at the time of reservation. A full refund will be issued if a reservation is canceled at least 48 hours in advance of the check out date.

We also have the following gear transportation items:
THESE ITEMS MUST BE RESERVED NO LATER THAN 2 DAYS IN ADVANCE to allow for adequate handling time (they are big, bulky, and need more than 1 person to move from storage).
All equipment is due on the date specified on the Rental Agreement Form, (typically no later than Tuesday unless otherwise arranged) and must be checked into the OAR office by the posted hours of the due date.
An immediate fee of $20 will be charged upon late return of any gear. For each additional day the gear is returned late, a $1 per day, per item fee will accrue. (Ex. An item was due Monday but was returned Wednesday. the fee would be $22.00).
If any part of OAR equipment is damaged, lost, and/or rendered permanently unusable, the charge is equivalent to the replacement value of the entire item (see rental prices for replacement costs). If a part is broken or lost and can be replaced, the cost of the part will be assigned as a damage fee. Renters will be contacted within a week with the total fee amount. Fee's must be paid within 5 business days or account holds will be utilized, as per policy, to ensure repayment.
People who return excessively dirty or wet equipment will be charged a cleaning fee appropriate to the offense. The cleaning fee will vary, and we retain a maximum charge of $20 per item. Renters are strongly encouraged to clean off and DRY ALL rented equipment items.
If gear is not returned on the specified return date or damage/cleaning fees go unpaid, the renter will be contacted via email and a financial hold will be placed on their SU student account. This hold will be for the full amount including any cleaning, damage, replacement, and/or late charges the student has accrued up to this point. Renters cannot register for classes until the hold is lifted from their account.
To Lift Holds: Pay the fee in full to the OAR office. Once paid, the hold will be cleared and taken off your account promptly.
