Regenesis Borrowing Centre

at York University's Keele Campus

To browse our item libraries, please click the links on the left pane.

Due to COVID-19, all of our borrowing centre items have been moved to Cycle York, which is at the South-East corner of the QUAD student residence building. The address is 95 The Pond Rd Unit # 90, North York, ON M3J 0L1.

Pick up is by appointment only. You must make an appointment to pick up your item.

What is Available to Borrow?

Everything from Basketballs to a Blender, from a 6-person tent to a DJ set - you can borrow it here! Tools, Costumes, equipment for hosting events, even camping - browse our item libraries (on the right) to find the item that's right for you or your group!

What are our Covid Protocols?

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, our Cycle York space is closed to the general public, so you can not browse the Borrowing Centre items in person. Pick-up and drop-off of items will take place just outside the doors of Cycle York. After use, items are cleaned and stored for a minimum of 7 days before being lent out again.
