Description

The old fieldhouse, built in 1939, was home to the University of Utah basketball team for thirty years. It was built with a combination of bonded debt by the university and Public Works Administration (PWA) funds.  

It appears to be used for intermural athletics today.

    The building was formerly conjoined with Rice Football stadium via a roof with additional bleachers at the north end zone and a tunnel where South Campus Drive went between the two structures. The tunnel was removed when the stadium was demolished in 1997-98 and Rice Eccles Stadium was built in its place. South Campus Drive along with a light rail line now runs in open space between the field house and the stadium.
