Frequently Asked Questions:

Do I need to have a roof rack on my car to rent a boat? Nope! UNI Outdoor equipment rental staff can attach any boat to any car without a special rack.

Do I need to have a trailer to haul multiple boats? Yes, but we have you covered! We rent out a 6-rack trailer and an 8-rack trailer for your convenience. You pay $10 per open spot on the trailer. The racks are free and come with your boat rental if you use up all the available spots.

Do I need to know how to operate a piece of equipment before renting it out? Absolutely not! Our friendly student staff can help educate you on pieces of equipment before you take it out!

Do you have maps of local areas? We sure do! We have local maps you can take with you in addition to guide books you can view before going out on your adventure.

What is a “multi-pass”? It is a one-time purchase pass that allows you to check out gear as many times as you want during the course of the semester. If you rent from us frequently, our multi-pass is the best option for you!
