Outdoor Facilities

In addition to our 123,000 square foot building, we offer an outdoor multipurpose field.

Multipurpose Field

The Marshall University Multipurpose Field is the perfect spot for students to get together and show off their athletic skills right outside of the Marshall Recreation Center. The field is made of synthetic turf, which makes it perfect for intramural sports such as flag football, soccer, ultimate Frisbee and any other field sports. Groups and individuals are welcome to make reservations through the department’s facility rental packages. On a beautiful day or even a rainy day, open recreation is encouraged if the space is not reserved. Field equipment can also be reserved free of charge by simply going to equipment checkout. In order to see if the field is available, schedules can be viewed on the iPad located just outside of the Proshop.
