OP Gear Rental Center

Rental Requirements

Outdoor gear rentals are available to all members of the Student Life Center with a valid SUNY Cortland ID. ID card and payment are required at the time of checkout to rent any gear. We currently accept cash or check.   

All rentals are due back in the Outdoor Pursuits Center prior to close on the due date. The base rate listed next to each item below is charged for the first 2 days of a rental.  After the second day, rentals are computed on a pro-rated basis to keep the rental cost reasonable.  The first day of rental applies to the day you rent the equipment out.  

Please select the following link to view our pro-rated costs and policies/fees.
