  • Learn to Swim
  • First Aid/CPR
  • Tennis Lessons
  • Special Event registration
  • Maryland Adventure Program trips
  • Adventure equipment rentals
Equipment is available for short-term checkout at the ERC, Ritchie Coliseum and the Armory. Picnic and outdoor equipment can be rented at the Outdoor Recreation Center. Late and damage fees will be assessed as appropriate.
Lockers in the ERC and Ritchie locker rooms can be rented for $35/semester or $90/year. Box lockers located in the hallways on levels 2 & 0 of the ERC can be rented for $15/semester. Free day-use lockers are also available in most CRS facilities. Bring your own lock to secure your belongings. Day use locks are cut off at closing each day. A storage fee is charged for belongings left in day-use lockers.
