The Center for Outdoor Recreation and Education (CORE) makes it easy and affordable for you to get outside. It is your one-stop-shop for everything related to the outdoors. You can rent gear to adventure on your own, go on a trip, and learn outdoor skills. Adventure in motion!
CORE will be open for gear rental on the spring semester Reading Days (April 27 and 28, 2023). From April 29, through finals week, and May Break, CORE will be closed.
CORE will open up again for gear rental on May 15, the first day of the Summer A semester.
