Central Field


“Central Field” is the new, outdoor artificial turf field available for Intramurals, Sport Clubs, student groups, and individual students/faculty/staff. It is located in the Central District, between the new Downs Hall and Stouffer Place Apartments.

This turf field is lined for:

  • Flag Football
  • Women’s Lacrosse
  • Men’s Lacrosse
  • Soccer

There are also movable goals for lacrosse and soccer. An electronic scoreboard sits on the northeast corner of the field. Lights have been added and can be turned on by pressing the button as indicated. The lights are activated for 30 minutes at a time and a strobe light warning will occur when there are 5 minutes remaining. To re-activate the lights, simply press the button again. The lights work between 5:00am and 11:30pm and they will automatically shut off at 11:30pm.

Future additions for the Central Field include restrooms next to the field. Parking access for this field will be any Yellow Lot. Please read individual signs for times and restrictions.

Central Field is scheduled, managed, and maintained by KU Recreation Services. Groups looking to reserve or rent the field for an event can do so by emailing Jeremy Chance or by calling 785-864-1372. Priority will be given to KU Recreation Services programming and events.
