Equipment Checkout Changes

Outdoor Adventures will now be checking out equipment in person at the Shed (past Brushy Fork) instead of bringing equipment to the Alumni Building.

There will still have forms available to reserve equipment online, however you will still need to go to the Shed to retrieve your equipment on the days that are available.
