Outdoor UW, home of the Wisconsin Hoofers
Outdoor UW is your outlet to the outdoors. From expert to novice, casual outdoorsy people to outdoor enthusiasts, if you want to get outside, we can help you do it.
Rent: Paddling rentals get you out on Lake Mendota and exploring Madison from the water. And tent rentals satisfy your need for stars and s'mores anytime! Paddling rentals begin May 23.
Learn: Wisconsin Basecamp provides new Badgers an opportunity to connect with other new students on a summer canoeing or backpacking expedition before they ever step foot on campus. Outdoor education and skill-based classes are also offered through the Wisconsin Hoofers.
