UREC Outdoors (HPER 102) offers a wide variety of outdoor recreation rental equipment. Currently enrolled students, UREC members, and individuals with a UARK ID (including faculty and staff) may check out equipment.
Equipment may be reserved up to one week prior to the planned check out date. Reservations may only be made in person; phone reservations are not permitted. Reserved equipment that is not picked up on the scheduled check out date will result in a reservation fee.
Payment, due at time of check out, may be made with check, cash, Visa/MasterCard/Discover/American Express, or a University cost center number.
Attention UREC Outdoors Patrons: Effective July 1, 2018, UREC Outdoors’ rental equipment pricing structure will reflect a “day” rate only. The cost to rent items for more than one day will be determined based on the number of days the item is rented, including the day it is checked out and returned. For example, the rental rate for an item checked out on Friday and returned Sunday will be the day rate multiplied by 3 days (i.e. Fri., Sat., and Sun.). If a costumer wishes check out an item and return it on Monday, the rental rate will be the day rate multiplied by 4 days (i.e. Fri.-Mon.).
Equipment Care and Fees
Rented equipment is due back to UREC Outdoors by close on the date specified on the rental contract and receipt. Equipment should be properly maintained and returned clean, dry, in good repair, and on the due date to avoid repair, replacement, or late fees. All late, damage, and/or replacement fees are due upon return of equipment. A late fee equivalent to the daily rental rate will be applied for each day an equipment item is overdue.
If UREC Outdoors staff discover damage to equipment during maintenance and cleaning, the renter is responsible and must pay for damage or replacement costs. Please read the rental equipment agreement (available at time of check out) for more information. Patrons are responsible for inspecting all equipment prior to rental to ensure proper working order and assess overall condition of equipment.
