About the Stadium
Memorial Stadium is the home of IU Football and a birthplace for Indiana traditions. With the completion of the North End Zone Student-Athlete Development Center, it becomes the epicenter for IU Athletics and a source of pride for all students, alumni and Hoosier fans.
With its two bold towers and expansive seating bowl, this 138,000-square-foot, multi-purpose facility has already become a visible landmark on the IU Bloomington campus. As the new headquarters of Indiana Football, it also serves to represent a commitment to elevating IU Football with training facilities, staff and administrative offices, position meeting rooms, a team auditorium and an underground walkway to practice fields.
The North End Zone Student-Athlete Development Center also serves as a gateway to Indiana University for fans and visitors. Enhancing the game-day atmosphere on football Saturdays, this addition converts Memorial Stadium into a horseshoe layout connecting the East and West stands, complete with a new seating bowl, concourse, concession stand, and outdoor club area. It is also home to the Henke Hall of Champions, a multi-level entertainment space featuring beautiful hardwood floors, stunning wooden arches, floor-to-ceiling windows, and museum-quality displays. This unique banquet facility will enable Hoosier fans to gather for special events and to celebrate the past, present and future of IU Athletics.
In front of the entrance to the North End Zone, Glory Plaza features brick pavers that can be personalized with individual and company names, dates and special messages. The engraved bricks are a way to recognize and honor families, alumni and special IU memories. Each brick will be permanently displayed on the walkway of Glory Plaza. IU alumni and fans can also order commemorative replicas of their brick to keep for themselves or to give as gifts. The Hoosier Football program enjoys spacious new position and staff meeting rooms and a team auditorium, all equipped with state-of-the-art technology. Each position room provides players with the resources they need not just for position meetings, but also for individual film review at any time. Additionally, the North End Zone houses the offices for IU's Athletics Administration.

•In addition to white away uniforms and red home uniforms, players are also outfitted with practice gear, war m-ups and all types of footwear.
•All 24 varsity sports at IU are outfitted by adidas.
At the heart of the North End Zone facility is the Student-athlete Physical Development Center - one of the largest strength and conditioning centers in the country. The 25,000-square-foot area is located at field level and provides student-athletes in every varsity sport with access to brand new weight training and cardio equipment. The facility houses about 150 pieces of equipment, over 11 tons of dumbbells and over 40 tons of free weights for IU athletes to use.
|The center is located on the bottom level of the new facility with glass windows looking out to the field. It is nearly five times the size of the previous weight room.|
A sports medicine staff of 12 full-time athletic trainers, a team physician, a nurse practitioner and numerous graduate assistant athletic trainers and athletic training students assist each other in providing the best care of Indiana University student-athletes.
IU Football's athletic training staff also provides such amenities as an underwater treadmill (to aid in treatment of leg injuries) and the Sideline Response System (to help alert the staff of a potential concussion) for injury prevention and rehabilitation.
Student Engagement Academic Resource Center
The new Academic Resource Center, located underneath the East side of Memorial Stadium, will help us provide student athletes with the resources they need to be successful off the field as well as on it. The 25,800-square-foot layout will repurpose existing space while dramatically expanding the facility to provide more computers, study areas and offices for private sessions. The expanded facility will also ensure that all student-athletes get the assistance they need to make the most of their academic careers.
•25,800 square feet of space dedicated exclusively to enhancing student-athletes' academic performance - a facility more than seven times the size of the existing academic resource center
•Modern computer lab with the latest technology
•Dedicated tutoring space and quiet study area
•Staff offices for confidential sessions
•Casual study area and lounge
•Demonstration of IU's strong commitment to academic excellence for all our student-athletes
The Academic Resource Center will utilize space formerly occupied by IU Football in Memorial Stadium. Remodeling of the space was completed in August.
|John Mellencamp Pavilion
In addition, the IU Football practice fields are directly connected to the North End Zone facility by a tunnel that leads onto the south end of the fields. Mellencamp Pavilion, which opens onto the practice fields, gives the team a place to practice during inclement weather.
•Mellencamp Pavilion features a new Sportexe Momentum 41 artificial surface that was installed in 2007.
•The IU practice fields, attached to the North End Zone by tunnel, provide two full side-by-side grass fields.
•MemorialStadium, used for walk-throughs during gameweek, features a FieldTurf surface that was replaced during the summer of 2008.
