The Outdoor Resource Center serves as the HUB of the outdoor community at San Francisco State University. Located in the Mashouf Wellness Center, we are a student led and focused program within Campus Recreation.
We offer inexpensive outdoor equipment rentals and a variety of resource guides and instructional books so that you can participate in the outdoor activities you love. In addition to equipment rentals, we also host numerous outdoor skills clinics to help familiarize students/faculty and staff with our equipment and pertinent outdoor skills such as backpacking, camp cooking and navigation, etc.
Our services are currently only available to Mashouf Wellness Center members who are Students, Faculty or Staff (A membership is included in tuition/fees during class sessions if you are a student. Faculty/Staff must purchase a membership). All equipment is rented on a first come, first served basis, as we do not take reservations.
