The Outdoor Rental Center has a very wide selection of outdoor equipment including mountain bikes, tents, sleeping bags, surfboards, wetsuits, snorkel sets, backpacking equipment, mountaineering equipment, and more. We are located in the Nicholson Commons Recreation Room. We also house an small indoor bouldering wall. We rent to PLNU students, staff, faculty, alumni, and the San Diego community. So Cal community members may be subject to an additional surcharge.
