Facility and Equipment Rentals

Facility Rentals

Spaces within the Beckerman Recreation Center are available for reservation by students, faculty/staff, and outside groups.  Student groups may reserve sections of the facility at no cost; however, approval will be based on availability and reservation requests during peak open-use times may be denied. 

Equipment Rentals

Equipment is also available for rental.  Daily equipment rentals require a UNH ID to check out.  All daily equipment MUST stay in the facility and be returned by the same person that checked it out.  Event Equipment Requests are available to groups and organizations that have a CONFIRMED event reservation on campus.  All requests must be submitted by completing an Equipment  Reservation Form available at our front desk. All Event Equipment MUST remain on the UNH campus and be returned to ChargerREC.  Failure to comply with equipment rental rules will result in fees for lost or damaged equipment and lost of rental privileges.
