Outdoor Facilities

KU Recreation Services has several outdoor venues to enhance your experience.

Adams Campus Challenge Course is great location to have your next team building event.

Our newest outdoor venue is the Central Field, an artificial turf field located between Downs Hall and Stouffer Place Apartments.

Be sure to check out the Tennis and Sand Volleyball Courts, which are located to the north of Watkins Health Center and to the east of Robinson.

Shenk Sports Complex offers fields for Intramurals, Sport Clubs, and special groups.
