THE NEW COLE FIELD HOUSE
Advancing the Science of Sport
For nearly half a century, Cole Field House hosted historic events that celebrated the best of sports. Now, a revitalized and expanded facility will raise that legacy to new heights.
The new Cole Field House will be a REAL-WORLD LIVING LABORATORY where innovators, scientist, clinicians, athletes and trainers converge to advance the science of sport.
The CENTER FOR SPORTS MEDICINE, HEALTH AND HUMAN PERFORMANCE will bring together leading researchers in neuroscience, genomics, biomechanics and other fields, from the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the University of Maryland, College Park, onto the front lines of advanced study of the brain and nervous system. An adjacent ORTHOPEDIC CLINIC will bring leading-edge medical facilities to campus, allowing for the rapid translation of research into practice for the benefit of the entire community.
The TERRAPIN PERFORMANCE CENTER will boast a full-size indoor football field, two outdoor fields, and advanced strength, conditioning and hydrotherapy centers, creating an athletic training facility unmatched in Division I sports.
The building will also host programs of the ACADEMY FOR INNOVATION AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP, preparing students for the competitive marketplace they will enter after graduation.
The new Cole Field House will allow Maryland to stand proudly among its Big Ten colleagues, not only as a premier athletic program, but also as a national leader in the science of sport.

MPOWERING THE STATEThis project was developed in part through MPower, a collaboration between the University of Maryland, Baltimore, and the University of Maryland, College Park. Launched in 2012, MPower joins the complementary resources of the two institutions to boost interdisciplinary research, inspire educational programs, attract top talent, spur technology transfer and drive economic development.
Like our very institution, the new Cole Field House will be bold and innovative. It will be a hub of activity at the heart of campus, pulsing with energy. It will unite vital programs in sports medicine, public health, athletics training and academic innovation.
It will preserve the rich history of a treasured landmark while launching the university to new national prominence. And it will elevate not only Maryland athletics but also our entire university community.
