Its brand new drainage system and lights allow for year round use, rain or shine. It’s perfect for larger teams to practice because of the ability to split the field in two (53’x80’, 53’x100’) for practice and skills training, then come together for a full on regulation game. Used year round by intramurals, Burdick Field East is perfect for any outdoor activity.


BU Field 2 (West Field-Small Field)
Installed in the Fall of 2014, Burdick Field West is a state of art synthetic turf field, perfect for lacrosse, soccer, field hockey or football with 5 yard endzones.
