Equipment Use Policy

Equipment use is limited to Augusta University students who have paid the Campus Recreation Center use fee.  Equipment checkout must be made in person with a valid JagCard.  Each student may rent two single kayaks or one tandem kayak.

To avoid unnecessary charges, the student is responsible to inspect all equipment, making sure all parts are in good, working order. Should something be missing, torn or broken, the staff on duty should be made aware of the damage.  Checkout/in can take anywhere from 10 minutes to 1 hour so plan accordingly.  All equipment must be returned clean and in good working order. A cleaning and/or repair fee of $20.00 will be charged for equipment returned dirty or in need of repair as determined by staff on duty.

Augusta University cannot be responsible for lost, damaged or destroyed personal property (including vehicles) or for any personal injuries incurred while using the equipment. Students are solely responsible for rented equipment for the duration of the contract.  Fees and policies are subject to change without notice.
