The stadium facilities include concession areas, restrooms, and a pressbox. The stadium is a brick and concrete structure and features black wrought iron fencing that encloses its West Stands.
State-of-the-art FieldTurf surface was installed on Memorial Field in 2006. The newest generation FieldTurf surface features reinforced spine monofilament, silica sand, and cryogenic rubber infill that simulates natural grass. In conjunction with construction of Floren Varisty House, the upper tiers (about two-thirds of the 9,500 seats in the East Stands) were removed. The remaining seats in the East Stands have been extended to match the 7,100-seat West Stands. Including temporary end-zone seating, Memorial Field has a seating capacity for about 15,000 spectators.
When no varsity sport practices or games are in progress, the facility is open for general use.
Dartmouth swimmers and divers have the advantage of exceptional pool and weight-training facilities. The Big Green swimming complex features two pools with a total of 15 25-yard lanes as well as two 50-meter lanes.
The cornerstone is the Karl Michael Pool, which features six racing lanes and seating for 400 spectators. Built in 1963 and designed by former Dartmouth swim captain R. Jackson Smith '36, the Michael Pool was host to the 1968 NCAA Men's Swimming and Diving Championship. In 1970, it was formally named in honor of the legendary Big Green swim coach, who headed the Dartmouth program from 1939-1970. The Michael Pool's diving area features one- and three-meter boards with Durafirm and Maxiflex equipment and a water well 12 to 17 feet deep.
Adjacent is Spaulding Pool, a 25 yard, 4-lane pool constructed in 1919. The walls surrounding Spaulding still feature the beautiful mosaic tile installed during the original construction phase 85 years ago.
