*Please note that the Beauchamp Rec Center basketball courts and studios are off-line until Thursday, Jan. 16 to allow them to cure after refinishing.  They look great and we can't wait until you can get onto them!

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 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.

Joggers on the indoor track

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.

Recreational Services offers programs for UP students, faculty & staff including fitness classes, intramural sports, outdoor trips, equipment rental, and CPR training.

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