Wickwire Field

Wickwire Field is Dalhousie's main outdoor sport facility, a superb asset for Dalhousie University students but also a key facility for programs offered by many local amateur sport associations.

Home of the Dalhousie Tigers varsity men's and women's soccer teams, and home base for the field hockey, football, lacrosse, and rugby club teams. In 1995 the field was renamed from Studley Field to F.B Wickwire Memorial Field.

The Dalhousie intramural program is incredibly active at Wickwire as well, where you’ll see a barrage of students taking part in flag football, soccer and ultimate Frisbee throughout the fall season.

Wickwire Field is located at the corner of Alumni Crescent and South Street. Click here to locate Wickwire Field on Dalhousie's campus map.
