Equipment Rental Center


COVID-19 Impact

Please call (919) 513-0072 or email our office to reserve your gear in advance for drive-thru pickup. A limited selection of canoes, kayaks and other hard-surfaced gear is being rented out this fall.

We are unable to rent out tents, backpacks, sleeping bags, and other porous-surface equipment due to safety restrictions.


Find everything for your next excursion in one place. We offer a variety of outdoor equipment for NC State students and Carmichael Complex members. Bring your Wolfpack One Card or Carmichael Complex Card to the first floor of the Carmichael Recreation Center during these hours.
