Gear Rental

The Center for Outdoor Recreation & Education (CORE) makes it easy and affordable for you to get outside. We have a warehouse FULL of outdoor/camping gear ready for your next adventure! Feel free to drop in for a tour or to get help planning your trip.

Gear rental is open to UF Students, Faculty & Staff.

You don’t need a roof rack! Boat rental packages include roof pads and straps. We help you load your gear and teach you how to use the straps.
