Residence Life

Living in the residence halls gives you the opportunity to make friends and become part of a close knit campus community. Every residence hall has their own unique traditions and events. Your dorm will become your home away from home.

Recreational Services

UP's recreational services program is all about helping you to find balance, stay fit, and try new experiences—on your own, with friends, or on a team. The Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center features traditional weight and cardio equipment, dozens of classes (most taught by students like you), free bike and camping equipment rentals, intramural sports leagues, and a variety of outdoor recreation opportunities that will take you to the mountains and the Oregon Coast. We'll help you balance out your hard work with time and space to play and relax.
