The recreational services office celebrated the one-year anniversary of the opening of the Beauchamp Recreation & Wellness Center on Wednesday, August 24.
“The facility has had a huge impact on campus and we are thrilled with the growth of our programs this year,” says Rec Services director Brian Dezzani. “More students, faculty and staff are working out than ever before at UP. I’m sure our recruiting efforts benefit from this great building as well. I heard a parent touring campus with her son, a potential student from Puyallup, Washington, say ‘It’s tough for other schools to compete when he sees a recreation center like this.'”

As the Beauchamp Center completes its first academic year of operation, the facility has successfully become an essential part of campus life for the student population and the greater UP community, according to Scott Leykam, athletics. The facility has logged 200,000 total visits from over 4,100 unique visitors.
The Beauchamp Center has also exceeded all revenue projections this year as it relates to locker rentals, equipment rentals, and guest usage. Because of this initial financial success, the contemplated revenue model of charging faculty and staff a below market monthly fee will be suspended for a minimum of one year. This decision will be reevaluated in the spring of 2017 based on revenue numbers and operating costs.
All other fee schedules related to locker/towel rental, spouse/registered domestic partner memberships, and equipment rentals will stay in place for the 2016-17 school year. The fee structure for 2016-17 will be the same as 2015-16 and can be found online at http://www.up.edu/recservices/default.aspx?cid=373&pid=77&gd=yes.
