Get outdoors and experience your own adventure. Rent camping equipment and other outdoor recreation gear from the Adventure Center located on the Concourse Level of the ARC. Everything you need for camping is offered plus you can get some advice on planning your excursion, what to take, and where to go.

Reservations

UIUC Adventure Recreation can process gear reservations at the Rental Center near the climbing wall in the Activities Recreation Center (ARC) by appointment only. You will be required to pay for the full rental before the reservation can be accepted. Students may only rent gear for themselves unless they are with a student organization.

For reservations please email us to secure the gear you need by giving us the following information:

  • Specific gear needed and how many of each item
  • Dates you will need the gear
  • Your name and UIN

If you are renting with a student organization for multiple people, please include the name of organization and who will be picking up the gear.

Refunds may be given up to 7 days before the reservation date. If cancellations are outside this window they will be evaluated on a case by case basis by the program Coordinator.

Reservations and questions may be sent to: adventurerecreation@mx.uillinois.edu
