Hughes Fieldhouse

Located just northwest of College Park and Bearcat Stadium on the Northwest campus, the Carl & Cheryl Hughes Fieldhouse serves as a host site for a wide range of University and community activities.  The project represents the single largest public-private partnership in Northwest's 112-year history--and one of the largest public-private partnerships ever in the region.  The Hughes Fieldhouse features:

  • 137,250 square-foot recreation and multipurpose facility including recreation and exhibition space,
  • indoor flooring system,
  • 100-yard practice turf,
  • 300-meter indoor competition track,
  • spectator seating, and
  • tiered meeting rooms.
The Hughes Fieldhouse is an estimated $20 million project with multiple financing sources, including commitments from the University, private support and community support.  The facility is named for the Carl and Cheryl Hughes family, who committed a significant gift to the project through the Hughes Family Foundation.
