Bellomy Field

Turf with Soccer Goal

Located along the Accolti Way, Bellomy Field is the home game location for the Men's and Women's Rugby, Men's and Women's Lacrosse, Men's and Women's Ultimate, and Women's Field Hockey Club Sports teams and the location for all field Intramural Sports competitions. 

The field reopened Fall 2011 after a renovation project that changed the 4.7 acres from natural grass to synthetic material. In addition, the exterior fence was moved from around the outdoor running track to just beyond the exterior of the field with room for slacklining. These improvements will allow for us to keep Campus Recreation programs happening even with a rainy winter.
