Division of Student Life

Welcome to Athletics, Fitness, and Outdoor Programs!


Welcome to the Reed College Sports Center! Summer is here, we are open with limited space due to construction, lots of movement on the new construction. Access to the Outdoor Center and Cardio Room will be thru the North Entrance off Botsford Drive, via card swipe only.

Thanks to our students for a fantastic year and we look forward to the fall semester and your return to meet your recreational 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 is ongoing through 2024, we are doing our best to keep spaces open but 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.

Cardio Room and Outdoor Center are OPEN! You will need to bring your Reed ID Card to swipe into the exterior door off of Botsford Drive for access.

Please see hours on sidebar or bottom of the webpage for most accurate hours for facilities and the pool.

  • Masks are encourage but not required at this time. Please do your part in wiping downequipment 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 closed for the summer. If you have a special event you want planned for the summer feel free to reach out to Will Symms for information on how to use the wall for special events. 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 grads from the 2022- 23 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).
