Equipment Rental Policy

Falcon Outdoor Adventures (FOA) offers outdoor recreation equipment rental to the campus and River Falls community. Rentals periods and rates vary from daily, weekend, and weekly as well as the ability to accommodate for extended rentals. Renters take full responsibility and assume proper use and care of the equipment released by FOA. Additionally, renters take full financial responsibility of the equipment rented to them in the event of theft, loss, accident, misuse or damage beyond reasonable wear and tear as determined by FOA Staff.

UWRF students are authorized to receive free rentals from Falcon Outdoor Adventures under these conditions:

  • Free rental is for the rate of one week maximum.  If interested in equipment for more than one week, student is responsible for the additional fees (per day, weekend, or week) at the regular UWRF Faculty/Staff rates.
  • Students are allowed to check out only one of any one type of rental item (at no charge) at a time. For example, a student can check out only one sleeping bag for free and not two. This is a student privilege only and not to be extended to friends or family.

Anyone is authorized to rent from Falcon Outdoor Adventures under these additional conditions:

  • All processes (i.e. Fusion, Rental Contract) must be completed by a Falcon Outdoor Adventures staff member or professional staff member prior to rental.
  • Renters are responsible for the replacement cost of any lost or stolen items checked out and/or the parts and labor cost for any damaged items.
  • All equipment must be inspected by Falcon Outdoor Adventures staff or professional staff upon return to access condition of equipment.
  • If interested in a departmental or student organization group outing, please contact Falcon Outdoor Adventures to discuss group reservations and equipment uses.

Free rental for UWRF students and standard rental for faculty/staff and community is a privilege.  However, like any privilege, it can be revoked if abused. Take care of the rented equipment. Treat it with respect and return it the way you received it. Prior to renting equipment, FOA will ensure the paper work is completed.  Users are responsible for damaged, lost, or stolen goods, return the equipment by the established due dates and times, and be respectful of the rental center staff assisting with rental and inspection of the equipment. Failure to reimburse fees or return equipment will result in suspension of your account and overdue balances being sent to Accounts Receivable for collection.

Late Fee Policy

Gear returned to the FOA front desk after the due date listed will be considered late. For gear that is 1-7 days late, the renter will be charged a $5/day flat-rate fee for late gear, regardless of the amount of items they are returning late. For gear that is 8-14 days late, the renter will be charged a $35 flat-rate late fee, regardless of the amount of items they are returning late. For gear that is 15 or greater days late, the gear will be considered lost, and the renter will be responsible for both the $35 late fee and the full replacement cost of the gear.

Cleaning Fee Policy

Renters that return dirty gear will be charged a $5 flat-rate cleaning fee, regardless the amount of items they are returning dirty. The cleanliness of the item upon return will be assessed by FOA staff members. It is the responsibility of the FOA staff member to ensure gear is clean when rented out, and it is the responsibility of the renter to inform the FOA staff member renting the gear to them of any gear-cleanliness issues before taking gear outside of FOA.

Damage Fee Policy

Renters that return damaged gear will be charged a fee equivalent to the full replacement cost of the damaged component. It is the responsibility of the FOA staff member to ensure gear is fully operational when rented out, and it is the responsibility of the renter to inform the FOA staff member renting the gear to them of any damaged components on the rented gear before taking gear outside of FOA. Any damaged gear noticed shortly after rental should be returned immediately to avoid charges. Damage that constitutes misuse or negligence in any form is subject to fees. Any damage caused by frequent equipment usage is exempt from fees, except in the case that the damage is exacerbated by attempted repair by the renter.

Lost/Stolen/Outstanding Gear Fee Policy

Renters that report gear as lost/stolen or renters that do not return rented gear within 14 days of the due date (as listed in our database) are responsible for the full replacement cost of that item. In order for FOA to have funds to replace the item, the “full replacement cost” is constituted as the full retail value of the item as listed when the item is brand new.

The FOA staff member working at the time of the lost/stolen report is responsible for informing the renter that they will be contacted by the FOA coordinator regarding payment.

The FOA Coordinator is ultimately responsible for contacting the renter and assigning lost/stolen gear fees. However, the FOA Student Manager may be enlisted to determine the full replacement cost of the item.

Failure to Pay Fees

Students who do not pay any assigned fees within 2 months of being made aware of those fees by either FOA staff or the FOA coordinator will have a hold placed on their records and a collection process will begin.
