Rental Equipment Policies

 

Acknowledgment of Risk

I understand that the foregoing risks cannot be eliminated without jeopardizing the essential qualities of the activity and assume those not under the control of University staff. I expressly agree to accept and assume all risks of the activity for which the University equipment will be used. My participation in this activity is purely voluntary, and I elect to use the University’s equipment and participate in said activity in spite of these risks.

I acknowledge that the University has made no representations concerning my ability to safely use the rented equipment, and no representations or recommendations concerning the appropriateness of my proposed activity. I understand that l am solely and fully responsible for the selection of my proposed activity, including its appropriateness for my level of skill and experience.

I assume the risk of any defect in design or use and have the responsibility to examine the equipment prior to accepting it. I acknowledge that there are no warranties applicable to the equipment rented whether expressed or implied.

Waiver and Release

I hereby waive, release and forever discharge, and agree not to claim against the Board of Trustees of the University of Wyoming, its trustees, officers, employees, agents, representatives, instructors, and volunteers for any injuries, damages, costs, expenses or attorney fees. I further agree to defend, indemnify and hold the Board of Trustees of the University of Wyoming, its trustees, officers, employees, agents, representatives, instructors, and volunteers harmless from and against any and all claims, demands, expenses, attorney fees, costs or causes of action connected with or arising from my participation in this activity and use of University equipment.

Eligibility

Rental equipment is only available to University of Wyoming students, faculty, staff, and dependents and spouses with a valid WyoOne card. Renters must be age 18 or older. The user who makes the reservation, must be the renter who picks up and pays for the equipment. Furthermore, the equipment must be returned by the user who rented it. It will not be accepted by anyone else.

Payment

A valid credit or debit card (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) is required to rent equipment. We accept cash, checks, credit or debit cards (Visa, MasterCard, or Discover) for payment.

Advanced Reservations

We accept advanced reservations the same week as pick-up, by phone or in-person. For example, if you wanted an item for a weekend rental, you can reserve that item as early as Monday of that week. No payment is necessary at the time of reservation. Payment must be made prior to checking out the equipment. We recommend in-person reservations for items that require sizing (e.g. skis, boots, etc.).

Late fees

Late fees begin the day after the equipment is due back. Renters are charged the "day 1" rate for each day (bike rentals will be charged 1/2 the semester rate each week) the equipment is late and continue to accrue until the equipment is returned.

Damaged or lost equipment

Renters will be charged for repair and shipping of damaged equipment or the full retail replacement cost for lost or stolen equipment. Cleaning fees are charged for returning dirty or wet equipment. Cleaning and repair fees are dependent upon the article of equipment.

Refunds

No refunds are made for equipment rented but not used. Any claim about the unsuitability of the rented equipment is limited solely to the refund of the rental fee.

Failure to pay fees

Failure to pay late, damage, or cleaning fees will result in the indefinite loss of rental privileges until full payment is received. Furthermore, access to Half Acre Recreation and Wellness Center may be revoked until payment is received.

Bike Rentals

When renting a bicycle from the Outdoor Program the user has full responsibility to follow and abide by all University, Municipal, and State laws and regulations regarding its proper use. When parking an Outdoor Program bicycle, you MUST lock the bicycle securely. Users are fully responsible for the full retail replacement cost for any lost or stolen bicycle

Group Discounts

We offer group discounts for students, faculty and staff renting nine or more of the same item. If you rent nine or more of the same items, you get the 10th item free (rent 19 and get the 20th free, etc.). Please note that this applies to one individual renting all the items. Rental items must have the same check-out and return dates (meaning they will be picked up and returned as one group).

  • Skate ski package (includes skis, boots, and poles), $150
