Outfitting Center

Ithaca's most comprehensive outdoor equipment rental center, currently serving Cornell students, faculty, and staff approved to be on campus.

We supply the necessary gear for all of COE's course offerings. Additionally, we rent a very wide selection of equipment to the community at large. We carry camping and backpacking gear, canoes, sea kayaks, cross-country and telemark skis, snowshoes, and more. Come to Outfitting to gear up for your next adventure. If you're interested in acquiring used gear, or selling some of your own, check out our annual community Gear Sale.

In addition to outdoor gear, COE has a fleet of passenger vans available for rent to Cornell Departments and official Cornell events.

COE’s Outfitting Rental Center believes getting outside shouldn’t break the bank and that’s reflected in our rates. COE is a non-profit organization with an educational mission, offering a wide range of classes and programs for the Cornell community and general public. Contact us before your next outdoor adventure and we’ll do our part to help you get outfitted to enjoy the outdoors.
