About the Facility

Located just northwest of College Park and Bearcat Stadium on the Northwest campus, the Carl & Cheryl Hughes Fieldhouse will serve 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 featuring 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 to be named for the Carl and Cheryl Hughes family, who committed a significant gift to the project through the Hughes Family Foundation.

The facility is an anchor of the University’s strategic plan, campus master plan, and comprehensive campaign and congruent with the Maryville Comprehensive Plan.

Staying true to Northwest’s history of sustainability and energy management, Leadership in Energy and Environment Design (LEED) certification is a goal of the facility, which will be designed and constructed according to modern sustainability standards. Construction is underway and is estimated to be completed in Summer 2018.
