The home of Indiana Football and a source of pride for all students, alumni and Hoosier fans. Memorial Stadium is named in honor of the sons and daughters of Indiana University who have served in the wars of the republic. The mast, prow and accompanying armament stand as a memorial to the sons and daughters of the state of Indiana who have so gallantly served in the armed forces of our nation.
With its two bold towers and expansive seating bowl, this 138,000-square-foot, multi-purpose facility represents a commitment to elevating IU Football facilities. The facility gives the Hoosier Football program an impressive team auditorium, position meeting rooms with state-of-the-art technology, and an underground walkway to practice fields. It is also home to the Henke Hall of Champions, a multi-level entertainment space featuring beautiful hardwood floors, stunning wooden arches, floor-to-ceiling windows, and museum-quality displays. This unique banquet facility enables Hoosier fans to gather for special events and to celebrate the past, present and future of IU Athletics.
Wilkinson Performance Center
At the heart of the North End Zone facility is one of the largest strength and conditioning centers in the country. The 25,000-square-foot area is located at field level and provides student-athletes in every varsity sport with access to brand new weight training and cardio equipment.
A sports medicine staff of 12 full-time athletic trainers, a team physician, a nurse practitioner and numerous graduate assistant athletic trainers and athletic training students assist each other in providing the best care of Indiana University student-athletes.
In addition to white away uniforms and red home uniforms, players are also outfitted with practice gear, warm-ups and all types of footwear. All 24 varsity sports at IU are outfitted by adidas.
John Mellencamp Pavilion
The IU Football practice fields are directly connected to the North End Zone facility by a tunnel that leads onto the south end of the fields. Mellencamp Pavilion, which opens onto the practice fields, gives the team a place to practice during inclement weather. Highlights include a new Sportexe Momentum 41 artificial surface that was installed in 2007 and a grass field connected to the North End Zone by underground tunnel.
Student Academic Resource Center
The Academic Resource Center, located underneath the East side of Memorial Stadium, will help us provide student athletes with the resources they need to be successful off the field as well as on it. The 25,800-square-foot layout will repurpose existing space while dramatically expanding the facility to provide more computers, study areas and offices for private sessions. The expanded facility will also ensure that all student-athletes get the assistance they need to make the most of their academic careers.
