The Adventure Center is located on the West side of the Student Recreation Center. You can enter through the front door, and head right, past the front desk. There is a separate entrance on the far West side of the Recreation Center as well, to either visit or load and unload gear through. See our hours for access. You can find FREE literature and equipment to rent at the Adventure Center too. We look forward to helping you with your next adventure!
