Athletic Facilities

The Golden Dome Athletic Center, the Golden Dome Tennis Complex, and Alumni Field serve as home territory for all Rutgers-Newark varsity teams and help support various recreational and community service projects.

The Golden Dome Athletic Center, located at the southeast corner of the campus, is the main athletic facility at Rutgers-Newark. Known for its unique geodesic, gold-colored roof, the Golden Dome Athletic Center is a multipurpose facility that is used for intercollegiate athletics and recreation. The center includes the 2,000-seat Golden Dome Arena; an eight-lane, 25-yard swimming pool; two racquetball courts; a plush student lounge; conference rooms; and a large, two-bay gymnasium.

The Dome also features an expanded fitness center, with free weights and a Nautilus room, and a multipurpose aerobics and exercise room. The latter is equipped with state-of-the-art fitness machines, including stairmasters, life steps, lifecycles, treadmills, Nordic Tracks, and Lido circuit training equipment.

Behind the Athletic Center is the Golden Dome Tennis Complex with five outdoor-lighted courts that serve the Raider tennis teams and provide recreation to the Rutgers community.

Directly across from the main campus is Alumni Field. This lighted facility is the scene of Rutgers-Newark men's and women's soccer games in the fall and baseball and softball contests in the spring. It has a running track for recreational use all year.
