Kent State Field House
Kent State Field House Fast Facts
Features: Mondotrack FTX (6 lanes); full-size artificial turf field
The men’s and women’s indoor track and field teams call the Kent State Field House home. The building, which was opened in 1990, is a $6.5 million state-of-the-art facility. Located inside the building is a newly installed FTX Mondo six-lane, 292-meter track used by the track and field teams for practice and competition. The track surface is the same as the one used at the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, and Kent State is the only indoor facility in the United States using this track surface. The infield of the track features a full-size artificial turf field.
Other features of the Field House include observation towers for filming, combination batting/golfing cages, pole vault and high jump pits, and dual long jump pits complete with runways and sand landing areas. The building also houses a 5,000 square foot weight-training complex used by Kent State student-athletes. Among the weight room features are 66 Eagle Cybex machines.
Due to its versatility, the Field House serves as a practice facility for Kent State baseball, field hockey, football, men’s and women’s golf, soccer and softball teams when inclement weather arises. A series of nets can be dropped from the ceiling to divide the field into separate practice areas for multiple users.
During the NCAA outdoor track and field season, Kent State trains and competes at the Kent State Outdoor Track.
