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.  

The University of West Georgia, based on guidance from the USG now and in the future, plans to open its campus for all employees and students for the Fall 2020 term. The information listed in UWG’s Return to Work Plan describes UWG’s method for bringing everyone back to campus in a safe and responsible manner. University Recreation has specifically outlined a detailed plan for maintaining patrons' safety throughout all facility operations and program offerings on our UREC Summer/Fall 2020 Operations page.

West Georgia Outdoors Hours

  • Monday - Friday: 12:00 p.m. - 6:00 p.m.
  • Saturday & Sunday: CLOSED

Where is West Georgia Outdoors? 

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.

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.
