Athletic Facilities



Fordham athletic teams have many facilities available to them, from the historical Rose Hill Gymnasium, to the newest structure, the Walsh Athletic Training Center.

The men's and women's basketball teams along with the volleyball squad, play in the Rose Hill Gym. The 3,470 seat gym opened on January 16, 1925 and was one of the largest on-campus facilities at the time it was built, earning the nickname "The Prairie" because of its large floor space. The arena has been in continuous use by Fordham's basketball teams since it's opening with the exception of the World War II years, when it was used for a barracks. The Rose Hill Gym has been the site of many legendary college and high school basketball games including Kareem Abdul Jabbar's final high school game and the 1988 Tolentine-Archbishop Molloy Catholic High School Athletic Association (CHSAA) Championship game, billed by New York Newsday as the "Best High School Game of the '80s." The Rose Hill Gym continues to host the CHSAA Championships annually.

The football and baseball teams utilize Coffey Field, named in honor of long-time baseball coach and Athletic Director at Fordham, Jack Coffey.

Murphy Field is the home site for Fordham's softball program as well as the intramural and club sports. Men's and women's soccer call Edwards' Parade home while the Lombardi Center Pool hosts the men's and women's swimming teams along with the water polo squad.

The newest athletic facility opened in 1996, the Walsh Athletic Training Center. The 3,200 square foot varsity athletic training facility is located under the stands of Jack Coffey Field and is supervised by Jason George, Fordham's varsity strength coach and the 1999-2000 Atlantic 10 Strength and Conditioning Coach of the Year. The facility offers a new, state-of-the-art weight room, along with a classroom with seating for 30-35 people, and adequate space for free movement exercises to supplement the weight training.
