Athletics, Fitness & Outdoor Programs

Division of Student Services

Reed provides everything you need to take advantage of Oregon’s active lifestyle. Lace up your shoes, dive into the pool, grab some gear from the backpack coop, or go trekking into the wilderness: It’s your adventure.

Club sports—like rugby and Ultimate—welcome newcomers and satisfy the competitive spirit of those with varsity backgrounds. Outdoor programs get you to the mountains, beaches, rivers and deserts and include backpacking excursions, weekend rock climbing trips, and access to the Reed-owned ski cabin on Mt. Hood. Choose from over 50 classes ranging from Aikido to Zumba to satisfy your PE Requirement. All of these programs are offered in a fun, supportive environment.

Athletics, fitness, and outdoor programs fall into three categories:

Facilities include:

  • Watzek Sports Center featuring a swimming pool, weightroom, mat room, yoga studio, locker rooms with saunas, and squash, cardio center, outdoor center plus climbing wall and a renovated basketball court;
  • a ski cabin on Mt. Hood that can be a respite during a day trip or a place to spend a night or two;
  • a student-run backpack coop located in the Outdoor Center to gear you up for your next adventure;
  • outdoor tennis and basketball courts plus two sports fields.

*All physical education classes are for currently enrolled students and have priority use of the facility. Current faculty, staff members, alumni and guests are not allowed to participate in Physical Education classes
