Equipment Rental

The NMU Recreational Sports department can help you explore the awesome natural environment of the Upper Peninsula with equipment from the equipment rental center. Rental items available include camping, boating and snow equipment such as sleeping bags, snowshoes and cross country skis, and kayaks (see full list below). The equipment rental center is near the climbing wall in the Rec Center of the Physical Education and Instructional Facility (PEIF) in Northern Michigan University’s Sports Complex.

 


Reserving Equipment

Advanced reservations for rentals are strongly encouraged. Reservations can be made up to two weeks in advance with a deposit equal to the item’s daily rental rate.  Reservations will not be held until the deposit is made. Refunds are provided for cancellations made 48 hours in advance of the pick-up date. Those made less than 48 hours in advance will not receive a refund.

A credit card number is required for rental. A credit card slip will be filled out by the renter and held by the rental center until the equipment is returned and its condition is assessed by the gear manager. If financial restitution or cleaning fees are required, the renter will be notified and charged.
