Outdoor Center

LEE Xin Min_2 People

The Outdoor Center is home to a full-service rental and retail facility, a lounge, an outdoor resource library, a trip planning area, a multimedia classroom and one of the largest collegiate climbing walls in the country.  We invite you to come rent gear, plan a trip, and improve your climbing skills. The lounge serves as a central meeting space for Stanford community members who are interested in outdoor adventures.  The Outdoor Center is located at the entrance of the Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center at 285 Santa Teresa St, next to Roble field. We look forward to seeing you soon!

The Outdoor Center does not rent Alpine Downhill Skis or Snowboard Equipment.  We do rent cross country touring and backcountry skis and snowshoes.  For Alpine Down Hill Equipment contact Sports Basement in Sunnyvale or Redwood City, or The Ski Renter in Mountain View.

*Please note: All monetary/rental transactions must be processed during Equipment Rental Shop operation hours.
