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.

outdoor fitness

The Beauchamp Center is designed to meet the needs of all of our students, faculty & staff. It is set up for those who like to join in or do their own thing.  Fitness studios of three different sizes allow for large & small group classes. 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 lockerooms 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.


HITT class

Recreational Services offers many programs for our students, faculty & staff including fitness classes, intramural sports, outdoor trips and equipment rental, and CPRtraining. Most staff within these programs are UP students. The offices for Outdoor Pursuits, Intramural Sports, Fitness Programs and Equipment Rental are all located in the Rec Center.

The Center is open to students, faculty, and staff at no charge. Alumni and spouses/partners can purchase memberships at the facility.

Two bright gyms offer basketball & volleyball, 3 courts total. One court can be set up for badminton and intramural leagues use the same courts for futsal, pickleball and team handball.

The bouldering wall and climbing tower have become an integral part of the facility and our programs and our staff changes routes frequently. Shoes are available to use at no charge
