Hughes Fieldhouse to close May 28 for rescheduled repair

The Carl and Cheryl Hughes Fieldhouse on the Northwest Missouri State University will close Tuesday, May 28, to repair a transformer.

The University had scheduled the repair for May 21 but postponed the work due to inclement weather.

With the exception of May 28, the Hughes Fieldhouse is accessible to community members with a valid Maryville Parks and Recreation membership as well as Northwest students, faculty and staff from 8 to 10 a.m. Monday through Thursday, through June 6.

Community members are encouraged to follow Northwest Campus Recreation on Twitter at @NorthwestSRC for updated hours and information, or contact the campus recreation office at 660.562.1606. Additional information about the Hughes Fieldhouse is available at www.nwmissouri.edu/HughesFieldhouse/.

Visitors should park in lots 62 and 63 south of the Hughes Fieldhouse and enter through the east entrance.

The Hughes Fieldhouse, which opened to the public last October, represents the single largest public-private partnership in the University’s history as well as one of the largest such projects in the region ever. The $21 million, 137,250 square-foot facility, which includes a 90-yard turf field for a variety of activities and a 300-meter track, is designed to serve a multitude of social, recreational and economic needs for the University and the region.
