University Commons & Yoder Arena

Completed in fall 2000, EMU's University Commons provides state-of-the-art athletic facilities as well as a community gathering place. It houses the University Bookstore, Lion's Den snack shop and game room. It also houses student life office suites, including health services with massage services. The gymnasium, Yoder Arena, is spacious enough to accomodate four full-court basketball courts and holds 1,800 fans at capacity. Dividers allow for team practices to overlap with recreational sports activities and other activities. Facilities include the only indoor pole vaulting pit in the region, a rock climbing wall, batting cages, and a state-of-the-art athletics training room.

EMU Turf Field

The EMU Turf Field was installed in the summer of 2006 and replaced the old turf field that had lasted for 17 years. The new turf was installed by A-Turf and is the home field for the men's and women's soccer and field hockey teams. A new elevated press box was built along the teams' sideline in the fall of 2009. The field also supports EMU intramurals, church league games, and other community activities as well.

Gehman Field

The home of the EMU softball team was installed in 1990. The complex underwent a major face lift after the 2002 season and now boasts two refinished dugouts, a press box, and new outfield fencing. An enclosed outdoor batting cage with two pitching circles were also added behind the leftfield fence.


Bomberger Field

The outdoor track and field were updated in 1990 and lie on the north side of campus, adjacent to Park Woods. The interior of Bomberger Field is also used for practice by the soccer and field hockey teams.

EMU Baseball Field

North of Bomberger Field lies the baseball diamond, installed in 1990. The dugouts were refinished following the 2004 season and in 2011 a new scoreboard was added beyond the leftfield wall.

Tennis Courts

Six lighted outdoor tennis and four basketball courts were installed along Park Road in 1990. Both courts provide outdoor recreation for the community as well as a home to fall intramural athletics at EMU.

Varsity Soccer Field

Another field, called Varsity Soccer Field, was created south of campus (adjacent to Eastern Mennonite High School's baseball and softball fields) in 1999 and is used for practice by the EMU teams.
