OA Equipment Rental

OA Equipment Room Location: 350 Alexander Street

The Equipment Room is not open during breaks and final exams, and on a limited schedule during midterms. Equipment rental is only for students, faculty and staff of Princeton University. PUID required. We do not rent equipment over the summer since we are busy preparing the equipment for Frosh Trip.

Fall 2016 Hours: 

  • Wednesdays 4:30-6:30pm
  • Thursdays 4:30-6:30pm
  • Fridays 1:30-3:30pm

It is appreciated if you email OA ahead of time with rental requests, so the Equipment Room staff can begin gathering your items.  For First Aid Kits, one week advance notice is required to guarantee availability. 

 

We offer reduced rental pricing for extended trips:
1-4 days:  no discount
5-7 days:  20% off total rental fee
8+ days:   40% off total rental fee

Student group rentals will receive an extra 20% discount if group funds are being billed.
Late Fees: after 2 weeks (the 3rd week) a 10% late fee will be added for each successive week until the gear is returned.
