Rental FAQs

 

Can I rent equipment if I am not a student?
Yes! UWGB Students receive a discounted rate, but we rent to anyone.
 
 
Where am I allowed to use rental equipment?
Anywhere! If the equipment is allowed there by local rules, it's fine with us - just don't use equipment for other than its intended use (ex. don't take one of our kayaks on whitewater)!
 
How do I make an equipment reservation?
Submit a rental request using the link above, or just give us a call at 920.465.2931
 
How long can I rent equipment for?
Equipment can be rented for up to 31 days.
 
Can I pick up/return equipment outside of office hours?
Equipment must be picked up and returned during our open hours.
 
Where do I pick up my rental?
We have a loading and unloading area right next to the building! Just navigate to the Shorewood Center, continue through the lot, and use the access road to park right next to the building.
 
How do I transport equipment like bikes and kayaks?
We provide mounting equipment to transport your watercraft rental, and bike racks can be rented for an additional fee.
 
Can I paddle in the bay?
You can! However, we strongly recommend having watercraft meant for big water (minimum 14' in length), experience on big water, and knowledge of self rescue techniques. NEVER paddle alone on big water. Please note that launching watercraft at Lambeau Cottage and Communiversity park is prohibited.
 
Is there anywhere within walking distance to paddle?
Not currently, the closest launch points into the bay are at the Metro Launch and Eagle's Nest areas.
 
Are there trails on/near campus I can bike on?
Yes! You are welcome to bike on the Cofrin Memorial Arboretum, but please follow their rules and stay off of the bark trails. Baird Creek is also a rideable distance from the Shorewood Center.
