Here at IU, we take Big Ten sports seriously, right down to where our teams practice and perform.

Take a look at some of the facilities that are home to our Hoosier athletes. Make sure to attend a home game to witness Hoosier Hysteria firsthand.

ASSEMBLY HALL
Home to our men’s and women’s basketball teams, Assembly Hall holds up to 17,472 Hoosier fans. It’s also where our five NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Championship banners hang.

MEMORIAL STADIUM
Memorial Stadium, which has over 50,000 seats, is the site of our home football games. Check out a performance of our renowned Marching Hundred during halftime, as well as “Hep’s Rock,” made of locally quarried limestone and named after the late head football coach Terry Hoeppner.

BILL ARMSTRONG STADIUM
The permanent home of IU’s men’s and women’s soccer programs, Bill Armstrong Stadium is also the location of the annual Little 500 race.

COUNSILMAN-BILLINGSLEY AQUATICS CENTER
Completed in 1996, the Aquatics Center is the site of both the swimming and diving programs and water polo. It is named after the legendary coaching team of James “Doc” Counsilman and Hobie Billingsley.

UNIVERSITY GYMNASIUM
The University Gym is where IU’s NCAA-winning women’s volleyball team plays. Since moving the site of volleyball games from Assembly Hall to the gym in 1996, the volleyball team has earned a 109-89 home game record. It is also home to the wrestling team.

JOHN MELLENCAMP PAVILLION
John Mellencamp, a resident of the Bloomington area, donated the lead gift for this $6 million dollar state-of-the-art facility. The Mellencamp Pavillion is now where almost every IU varsity team can practice year-round.
