Campus South Athletic Field

Overview

The Campus South Athletic Field replaces the former Campus North Athletic Field at 55th Street and University Avenue, as that site will accommodate the new Campus North Residence Hall and Dining Commons.  The Campus South Athletic Field will primarily be used by University sport club and intramural teams, and will also serve 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 has been a vacant gravel lot for many years.  

The new site will include a synthetic turf field with lighting for evening events, bleacher seating for up to 50 spectators and a 1,250-square-foot service building.

Completion is anticipated summer 2014.
