Jack Barry Field will finish construction in beginning of August

MIT’s Jack Barry Field is under construction that is expected to be completed in the first week of August. After 12 seasons of use of the current surface, a new synthetic surface will be installed. The facility is not only used by MIT’s field hockey team, but is also used by the entire MIT community. Students, faculty, and alumni can often be found playing lacrosse, soccer, and other sports on the field in the evening. Improvements on the field will not only include the new synthetic surface, but also a new walkway, safety netting, sound system, and lighting for use in the evenings.
