The new UP recreation center will be named after Fr. William Beauchamp, retiring president.

A new University of Portland recreation and wellness center, set for groundbreaking in May, will be named for Holy Cross Father William Beauchamp, who will step down at the end of the academic year.  

The school's president since 2003, Father Beauchamp has been a strong supporter of the new center, expected to be completed by May, 2015. The building will be located on what is now a parking lot at the corner of North Portsmouth and Strong avenues.

The center will include modern fitness gear and will cost an estimated $23 million, with $20 million raised already.  

Father Beauchamp says he is "moved and delighted" by the honor.

"Our greatest treasures on The Bluff, the whole point of our mission and creative drive, are to help students discover and shape their God-given gifts and talents," he says.

A gymnasium will include three courts for basketball, volleyball and floor hockey. An indoor track will be suspended above the gym and will hold three lanes for walking and jogging as well as pace clocks and stretching areas. The center will also have two exercise studios, a spinning studio and a 32-foot rock-climbing wall.
