We rent, deliver and pick up equipment to support events, large and small, on campus. We have the commonly needed tables and chairs, as well as lesser known items such as grills, podiums, and coat racks. To see photos of our items view our Rental Items Photo Guide and when you are ready to request rental items, please use our Event Support Request form. To make your event more sustainable, visit the Office of Sustainability's Green Your Event for tips and ideas.

Available equipment includes items such as:

  • chairs
  • garment racks
  • grills (require Fire Marshal approval, and all elements on the Fire Marshal's Grill Checklist)
  • podiums
  • tables
  • table covers (linens may be requested through your caterer)
  • trash cans


Equipment must be ordered at least three days in advance of the requested delivery date. It may not be possible to fill last-minute requests. Changes may not be honored if made less than one business day prior to delivery.


Follow the Request a service link at the right to submit an Event Support Request. You are welcome to call us with any questions, and you must submit the form to order. Your NetID is required.

You will receive a confirmation email to confirm your event support request and we may contact you if we need clarification or have scheduling conflicts.
