Faculty & staff access date has been pushed back due to our reopening postponement.  The date will be two weeks after we reopen to students.  State, County and University regulations, as well as air quality, may impact opening date.

September 17, 2020 Update
We are currently in a holding pattern, watching all air indexes and forecasts to determine if we will be able to open on Friday, September 18, to students.  We will make a decision as soon as we feel confident that weather will either provide a safe Air Quality index reading or not.  We are watching PurpleAir, Airnow.gov, Windy.com, Accuweather and weather forecasts by local news professionals.  We will need to introduce outside air into our facility's HVAC system so it must be at a safe level.  We will update our website when possible but for earliest notification, we will communicate via Instagram & Facebook, @uprecservices and @portlandintramurals. 

We need to look after the safety and welfare of UP students, our facility student & professional staff and our university faculty and staff  Thanks for your patience!

Air quality due to Oregon & Washington fires have forced us to postpone our reopening of the Beauchamp Center from September 14 to a future date.  We will reassess air quality daily to determine when it is safe to reopen and will post on Rec Services' Facebook and Instagram accounts, @uprecservices.
