New fieldhouse at UWL open to some athletes; officially opens in late January



The newest building on the UW-La Crosse campus will be open in a couple of weeks.

The university’s $42-million fieldhouse will officially open Jan. 23, the start of the spring semester.

The building, however, is already being used by members of the track and field teams.

Indoor track events will be the main attraction inside the field house, which has been under construction since the summer of 2020.

The 144,000-square-foot facility is designed to provide new space for growing athletic programs at UW-L, and to ease congestion at Mitchell Hall, which was built in the 1960s.
