Richard E. Lindner Varsity Village
The opening of the Richard E. Lindner Varsity Village in 2006 marked a transformational moment in the history of UC Athletics. Named through the generosity of Cincinnati philanthropist Richard E. Lindner and the Lindner Family, these facilities brought The University of Cincinnati to the forefront of our peer institutions in the BIG EAST Conference and on a national stage.

Sheakley Athletic Center
The groundbreaking of the Sheakley Athletics Center signified a renewed commitment to UC Athletics. This multi-sport facility, named in honor of UC benefactors Larry and Rhonda Sheakley, gives UC Lacrosse a home to call their own, and the nationally-ranked Football program an on campus practice laboratory. Unlike other nationally-ranked academic programs, UC Football did not have a classroom to teach the unique and complex brand of football the Bearcats employ. Sheakley Athletics Center provides that opportunity for our coaches and student-athletes.
Phase One of the project (formerly known as the Jefferson Avenue Sports Complex) was completed in 2010 which includes a full 120-yard football field and a 60-yard 'spill' field, which will allow for split practices when needed. During the winter months, the inflatable dome covering the main (FIELD NAME) field provides an area for all outdoor sports to condition and train. Phase Two will be completed in August, 2012 with a viewing tower, locker rooms, a press box - amenities that will make the Sheakley Athletics Center a true asset to not only UC Athletics, but to the community we share with the people of Cincinnati.
