It is the goal of the Outdoor Recreation Center (ORC) to provide the university community with the necessary equipment and resource material to enjoy a comfortable and safe adventure in the outdoors, including camping, backpacking, kayaking, snorkeling and climbing. Through the rental program, the center strives to provide the latest in adventure equipment at reasonable fees. Detailed information about UGA Outdoor Recreation activities and outdoor recreation information about Georgia is provided in the ORC. Books, maps, brochures, magazines and videos are available for check out during center hours to assist participants in planning their next adventure. T-shirts, water bottles, and a few other items are available for retail sale.

Parking for Equipment Loading and Unloading:

Renters are responsible for picking up & returning equipment during ORC scheduled hours of operation. As there are no designated spaces for long term ORC parking, renters must call the ORC to arrange large equipment (canoe, kayak, bulky equipment) pick-up & return in order to keep time to a minimum. Special arrangements for boating equipment pickup & return in the back lot of Ramsey (E09) are possible. A pay lot adjacent to the East Campus Parking Deck is available for a nominal fee. The ORC is not responsible for any parking citation received by renters.

Photos of rental equipment are available on our website, www.recsports.uga.edu/out_rentals.php.
