Outdoor Recreation Equipment Depot

NOTICE: Following guidelines and efforts to reduce the spread of Covid-19, The Depot will not be maintaining consistent hours of operations. We are examining ways in which we can continue to serve our valued users and will post any changes as they are implemented. Until then, The Depot will remain closed for rentals.


This off-campus facility houses the School's vast equipment inventory. Equipment is available to students registered in scheduled ORPT courses free of charge. Other users may rent equipment at competitive rates when not being used in courses. Learn about our rental program here.
