The Outdoor Center is home to a full-service rental and retail facility, a lounge, an outdoor resource library, a trip planning area, a multimedia classroom and one of the largest collegiate climbing walls in the country. We invite you to come rent gear, plan a trip, and improve your climbing skills. The lounge serves as a central meeting space for Stanford community members who are interested in outdoor adventures. The Outdoor Center is located at the entrance of the new Arrillaga Outdoor Education and Recreation Center at 285 Santa Teresa St, next to Roble field. We look forward to seeing you soon.
