Ready to rent?
Due to the campus closure related to COVID-19, we are not currently accepting rental requests. We hope to have rentals available again later in the summer. Please check back for updates.
Rent from us!
Pick-up and Drop-off
Outdoor Program gear rental is located across from the lounge on the ground floor of Harmon Hall at 1115 Academy Street Kalamazoo, MI 49006. When entering the building from the Academy entrance, turn left when you see the vending machine and our office is located on the left. Our door is marked, but if it is closed we are likely not in the office. Check the white board on the door in case we left a time for when to expect us back!
Drop-in Rental Hours – Currently Suspended
Friday 12-1pm & 4-6pm
If you need to pick-up or drop-off equipment outside of these hours, please contact GearRoom@kzoo.edu to determine what day/time will work best.
Rentals to all staff, faculty and community members require a deposit in the form of a credit card number which is destroyed once items are returned.
