Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Beyond Walls must regretfully suspend all programming through the end of the academic school year.

Beyond Walls staff will be reaching out to all families periodically with program updates. We also will provide regular updates on social media and our website.

Please stay safe and healthy. We look forward to returning to action on the squash court!

“University Recreation and Wellness is proud to offer facilities and resources that aid in the physical, social, and intellectual development of these students. The holistic development of the students in the program is a tribute to the staff and volunteers who provide time and caring attention to each and every one.” —George M. Brown, Assistant Vice Provost and Director of Recreation and Wellness, University of Minnesota

“After seeing the program in action, Beyond Walls is truly a hidden gem in our community. I was inspired by the work they are doing with local students.” —Aretha Green-Rupert, Regional Director, Otto Bremer Trust
