Located directly behind the Louis Brown Athletic Center, the Bauer Track and Field complex is one of the finest in the nation. Dedicated in April 1996 and specifically built for track and field, the facility boasts eight lanes, two shot put circles, four long/triple jump runways, two discus/hammer cages, two pole vault runways, two javelin runways and sprinting and hurdling areas on either side of the track.
The complex hosted the BIG EAST Outdoor Track and Field Championships in 2004 and 2005.
In 2009, the inner oval was renovated to accommodate field hockey games. Astro Turf 12 was installed and the Rutgers Field Hockey Team now calls the Bauer Track and Field Complex home. The respect AstroTurf has earned among field hockey players and coaches worldwide can be seen in the popularity of AstroTurf 12. Designed to meet FIH standards, it is a favorite for its playability, durability and low maintenance.
