Want to create your own adventure?

For excursions big and small, West Georgia Outdoors offers equipment at low cost for UWG students, faculty and staff.  Our staff can also assist you in the planning and logistics of your very own adventures.

West Georgia Outdoors Summer 2022 Hours

  • Monday: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday - Thursday: CLOSED
  • Friday: 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.

Located on the second floor of the Campus Center across the hallway from the back courts, West Georgia Outdoors is the hub for all things outdoor-related. If you are needing assistance outside of these hours, please email urec@westga.edu to set up an appointment.

How does renting equipment work? 

Renting equipment is most often done on the spot - just stop in and one of our trip leaders can help outfit you for whatever adventure you are about to embark on. All you need is your UWG ID and either credit/debit cards or check to pay. Please note UREC no longer accepts cash as a payment method. Equipment may be checked out for up to one week, but if you need to rent equipment for longer than one week, special permission is required and can be requested by email at wgo@westga.edu.

Please note - additional fees may be applied if equipment is returned late, excessively wet/dirty, damaged or if your equipment is stolen/misplaced.
