Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center

Special Note:  Out of an abundance of caution, and in conjunction with state guidelines on public gatherings, the Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center was closed the morning of Thursday, March 12 at 10:00 AM and will remain closed until further notice. We will take this time to thoroughly deep clean the building in preparation for reopening at a later date.

As the COVID-19 situation changes day-to-day, we are unsure when the Beauchamp Center will reopen and when our programs will resume.  Most of our services are free to University of Portland students, faculty and staff.  For those that require a fee, we will offer refunds or apply the value of services missed to future service as described below.  

Outdoor Pursuits- Students will receive a refund of all fees paid for OPP Trips or classes (CPR, First Aid, etc.) scheduled to take place through April 12, 2020.  If trips after that date do not take place, we will refund students at the end of the semester.  Refunds will be sent to address on file. 

Lockers and towel service- Students will receive a refund for all locker & towel service from March 12, 2020- May 15, 2020, on a pro-rated basis.  Refunds will be sent to address on file.

The hub for fitness and recreation on the University of Portland campus is the Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center. A 2016 Athletic Business Journal Award of Merit facility, "The Beau" is a state-of-the art facility designed with the user in mind.  With windows surrounding the indoor track, cardio suite, weight room, gyms and fitness studios, high ceilings and an outdoor workout space, the facility is an airy and welcoming place where Portland Pilots work toward living a healthy lifestyle.

The large cardio loft offers over 50 cardio pieces including bikes, stair climbers, ellipticals, adaptive motion trainers, elliptical, lateral x, arm trainers, rowers and of course, treadmills. Most have built-in TV screens.

The weight room is a blend of free weights and cable machines to provide great options to beginners and advanced weight trainers. We have two additional areas where kettle bells, medicine balls, dumb bells, plyo boxes, exercise balls and jump ropes are available.

The facility also has TVs throughout with sporting events showing as well as in-house announcement screens. Our student staff picks our in-house music so you're likely to hear some great tunes.

Women's and men's locker rooms round out the facility offerings with elegant tile floors, glass shower dowers and wood lockers. There are also day-use lockers available throughout the facility.
