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.
