COVID-19 has forced UP to offer online instruction in Fall 2020.  Because of the challenges of the virus and the state, county & university guidelines, we will not be able to offer some of our very popular programs in their normal format.  We traditionally offer programming in outdoor pursuits, fitness & wellness, intramural sports and climbing. Our bike shop offers short-term rentals and bike repairs. The Equipment Center has what you need for your outdoor adventures.

The Office of Student Activities works with sport clubs which are groups of students interested in playing and competing in a specific sport. They practice together and compete against other universities and clubs. Some UP sport clubs are ultimate, volleyball, soccer and lacrosse. To learn more, please contact student activities at 503.943.7470 or

If you have a disability and require accommodation in order to fully participate in any of our activities, please contact the director of recreational services at 503.943.7177.
