The UWild Gear Garage is open by appointment; there you’ll find an amazing variety of outdoor equipment to help you enjoy the out-of-doors. We offer rentals of outdoor equipment at reasonable rates for students and the UW community.

The Intramural Activities Building (IMA), IMA Pool, in-person fitness classes and personal training, Intramurals, Crags Climbing Center, and most outdoor fields and courts are still closed due to State Governor Jay Inslee’s COVID-19 (Coronavirus) guidance. The following outdoor spaces remain open: Denny Field (turf), Chase Anderson Basketball Court, Field # 2 & Field # 4 (both grass), and Husky Rock. We will announce as soon as possible when we are able to safely reopen our facilities, and we appreciate your patience and understanding.
