Gear hire

MUOC provides gear for your outdoors exploits, whether you’re heading out alone or with the club.

It’s expected that you treat the gear like your own. Returning late, dirty, wet, or mistreated gear will make us cranky!

To find out more email blockhouse@muoc.org or visit the blockhouse which is open on a weekly basis during semester 1 and 2. Opening times are communicated via our facebook page.

Blockhouse Officers cannot hire out specialist gear (denoted by a *). For this equipment please contact the president or appropriate section rep.
