Division of Student Life

Welcome to Athletics, Fitness, and Outdoor Programs!


Cheers to a new year in 2023 at the Sports Center! Our department is looking forward to serving your physical education requirements through a wide variety of course offerings to meet mosts needs. Our goals are to offer an inclusive atmosphere where students can come and de-stress, practice holistic wellness practices, gain lifelong skill sets learning new mental and physical disciplines and develop strong social connections with fellow community members.

Construction of the new Sports Center is starting to take shape starting 2/1/23. This means that many spaces may be impacted for use with little notice to our department. Closures of spaces could happen. We ask that you have patience with the variable program and facility use during the next year and half of construction. Many times issues will arise that are outside of the SC staff control and perview with the project.

If you are looking to add a PE course this spring, we suggest you come to the first class session and inquire with the instructor on space availability, you never know!

  • Please see hours on sidebar for most accurate hours for facilities and the pool.pointer
  • Masks are encourage but not required at this time. Please do your part in wiping down equipment with towels and cleaning solution provided at the cage and in work out areas.
  • We will keep up our cleaning schedule and bottle and towel hand out for everyone to help out and keep our space as clean and hygienic as possible.

The outdoor center (Backpack Co-Op) will have open check out and return times for equipment rentals. You can drop in or reserve items via the on-line reservation form. Please remember to check out the google calendar for open hours for the co-op for pick ups and drop off of items. (Not all items requested are always in stock).

The climbing wall at Reed is open for regular hours. Subscribe to their calendar for events and updated hours daily. Bring your team in for an introduction to climbing, it is a great way to build community in a safe and fun manner.  Join our mailing group at

Alumni, guests, family of staff/faculty and students and non-community members  are not allowed access to the sports center facilities at this time. This includes recent grads from the 2021- 22 class at this time. Due to the collapse of the gymnasiums in 2020 and losing over 10K sq ft of programming space, and with the upcoming construction and remodeling of the facility, we are continuing to limit facility access to accommodate only our current students and community members (staff, faculty).
