Rental Location

  • Staff will meet patrons at the double doors located under the metal overhang.
  • Equipment checks will be conducted outside and may only be moved indoors to the gym in the event of heavy rain.


  • The North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Program will take reservations for resources via the Rental Request Form, but cannot guarantee the resources will be available. Every effort will be made to fill the reservation.
  • The Rental Request Form must be completed by 5 p.m. ONE day prior to the date in which you wish to rent the resources. 


  • No person may checkout more than $50 worth of material.
  • It is the responsibility of the renter to inspect any material for damages upon checkout. If the renter decides not to inspect the material prior to checkout, or if the North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Staff is not informed of the damages before the material leaves the premises, it will be assumed that the renter caused any damages found upon return.


  • All material will need to be returned in the same state as it was rented.
  • All material must be inspected for damages upon its return regardless of whether or not the material was used. The renter must be present and should allow at least 15 minutes for this process.
  • If the renter decides not to allow the appropriate amount of time for the material to be inspected at the time of return, a fee of $5 will be imposed.
  • All returns of material will be given a 30 minute grace period after the specified return time. If the material is not returned at the conclusion of the grace period, a fee of $5 will be imposed. Each day the material is late, a fee of $5 will be imposed, weekends not included, until the material is returned or until the retail cost of the material is reached.
  • Any lost material will be charged with the cost of replacement.
  • Any material requiring the cost of replacement must be returned to the North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Staff. The damaged material must be returned on the predetermined return date. If it is not returned, all policies still apply. In any case, renters will not be allowed to keep the damaged material.
  • All fees are due by 5 p.m. one week from the issued date. A hold will be placed on the student’s Banner account if the fee is not paid. If the renter is a faculty or staff member, Resource Library privileges will be revoked until the fee is paid.
  • All fees and their respective due dates are subject to change at the discretion of the North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Staff.


  • The renter assumes full responsibility for the material checked out and all its components and, upon request, agrees to pay for any incurred damages.
  • The renter is responsible for all lost or stolen material. The renter also assumes total liability for all damages incurred through the use or misuse of the material.
  • The North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Program reserves the right to limit or revoke Resource Library privileges due to the abuse of the Resource Library Policies, unpaid fines, damaged material, unused reservations, etc.
  • The renter will not hold the staff of the North Georgia Outdoor Pursuits Program, Recreational Sports Department, or University of North Georgia responsible for any injury, sickness or accident incurred while utilizing the resources.
