Reserve GSA Equipment

GSA owns several pieces of equipment useful to graduate students and employees. This includes charcoal grills (permanent and portable), a medium-sized sound system, popcorn, snow cone, and cotton candy machines, lawn games, and bikes. We allow gradate organizations to use most of our equipment for free, with a deposit to ensure that the equipment is returned clean and on time When renting any piece of equipment out, you will be required to sign a contract with the GSA.

To reserve equipment, you should fill out the rental request form. Filling out this form does not guarantee the equipment will be available at your requested time. A GSA officer will follow up with you within 24 hours to confirm availability. If you have any questions, you can always contact gsa[@]rice.edu.
