FAQ

Rental Center

Who can rent equipment?

Anyone!  UWRF students taking 8 or more credits can rent equipment for up to 7 days for FREE with a valid UWRF ID.  Faculty/staff, Alumni, and Emeriti may rent at a reduced fee. Public/community members may also rent at a flat rate. Check the Rental Center page for specific rates, rental policies, and equipment available for rental.

What equipment is available for rent?

Bicycles, roller blades, lawn games, tents, backpacks, camping gear, snowshoes, cross-country skis, ice fishing gear including ice house and auger, and more!  Check out all rental equipment on the Rental Center page.

When can I rent/return equipment?

Equipment can be rented and returned during open Rental Center hours with the exception of university recognized holidays.  Please see the Rental Center page for up-to-date hours of operation.

How long can I keep rented equipment?

There are three rental period options:

  • Daily (overnight rental)
  • Weekend (3 day rental)
  • Weekly (7 day rental)

Renters may return equipment early with no penalty; however, FOA will not issue a refund/reimbursement for unused days.

Can I return equipment when the Rental Center is closed?

Nope! We accept returns only during normal Rental Center hours. Please contact the Falcon Outdoor Adventures Staff at (715) 425-4622 with any questions or special requests.

How do I avoid being charged a late, cleaning, or damaged fee on equipment?

As long as equipment is returned clean, dry, undamaged, and on time, renters will not be charged any fees.  Damage fees are assessed by a Student Manager and the Outdoor Recreation Coordinator.  When a repair estimate is determined, the renter will be contacted and given payment instructions.
