The Equipment Room (E-Room) is located right next door to the Package Center. If you were to go through the entrance of the Package Center, instead of turning right to get in line, head straight. Hours are Mondays, Fridays from 6:30-7:30 pm, Wednesdays, 7:00 – 8:00 pm. Emails to the BOC list-serve will be sent out if there are any change in hours.
You need to have keys to get in and only the E-room directors have them. So someone does need to be there for you to get equipment. Equipment is available for use from the Outing Club. A deposit is required to rent the equipment. The deposit is charged via a credit card will be returned to you upon return of the equipment! The deposit is $5 PER ITEM. The items must be returned within one week to the E-room. Check with the E-room staff regarding the due date of items over breaks.
The E-Room has just about everything that you could ever need to do something in the outdoors. Nordic skis, Alpine skis, and all the accessories that you could imagine to go with, boats and boating, climbing, camping, etc. Pretty much you name it, the E-Room’s got it. Maybe. There’s also equipment for trail maintenance, and sports such as rock climbing and ice climbing (i.e. ropes, carabiners, harnesses, crampons, and ice axes) that is rented out for certain trips that are approved in advance. Particular items of interest may be rented with special permission.
