Mackal Field House

The Mackal Field House is a facility sponsored by the generous gift of $500,000 from the late Henry H. Mackal in 1975 and made feasible by a $5.4 million state bond referendum (1986), a $200,000 contribution from Fleet Bank and University capital funds, meets many long-standing needs of the URI Sports Community. The completion of the $8 million Mackal facility in 1991 marked the culmination of a project over ten years in the making.
