Campus South Athletic Field


The Campus South Athletic Field replaces the former Campus North Athletic Field at 55th Street and University Avenue, as that site now accommodates the new Campus North Residence Hall and Dining Commons.  The Campus South Athletic Field is primarily used by University sport club and intramural teams, and also serves as a practice venue for varsity soccer and football.

The field is located south of the midway on the corner of east 61st Street and south Woodlawn Avenue, at a location that was a vacant gravel lot for many years. The new site includes a synthetic turf field with lighting for evening events, bleacher seating for up to 50 spectators and a 1,250-square-foot service building.
