Is a deposit required before renting gear or equipment?
Each rental item has a deposit fee, which is due in full at the time of rental with a credit card or additional check. Your deposit will be returned when all rental equipment is returned and any late fees, damage and/or wet/dirty fees have been assessed and paid in full. It may take up to one week to assess the damage fees. Campus departments using a recharge will not be required to place a deposit. 

How many items can one person rent at a time?
There is no limit. We allow one person to rent various items or multiple of the same item at once (e.g. an individual can rent more than one tent, stove, etc.).

What do I need to bring?
UCSB Students will be required to present a current UCSB Access Card in order to receive student pricing. All others will be required to present a current government issued ID. A credit card or check is required for a deposit. All renters must sign a UCSB Waiver of Liability, Assumption of Risk & Indemnity Agreement. Waiver Agreements are available online and at the rental center.

What forms of payment do you accept?
Payments can be made with cash, check, Visa, or Mastercard, however, the deposit must be payed with a check only.

How long does it take to rent gear or equipment?
Depending on how many customers we are serving, it can take a short while to complete the process. Renters will also have the opportunity to inspect the gear which is very highly recommended. Therefore, please allow for at least 15-20 minutes or longer.

How long can I keep rental gear?
You are able to rent our gear for weekend or week long intervals from both Rental Centers. Campus Point also rents by the hour. Weekends run from Wednesday to Monday, while week intervals are from Monday to Monday or Wednesday to Wednesday. All equipment and gear must be returned on time or subject to late fees.
