Main Campus athletics and recreation facilities are a distinctive element of the UNC-Chapel Hill student experience. However, the mature campus environment and topography make it challenging to identify large building sites for indoor facilities and large flat areas for courts and fields.

Recreation space metrics articulated in the Recreation Master Plan indicate shortages in both indoor and outdoor space, and the Athletics Department has prioritized projects that will allow UNC to maintain competitiveness for their teams in their master plan. Optimizing facility schedules between Athletics, Campus Recreation, and Exercise and Sport Science throughout the day and year can maximize utilization of the University’s current assets.
