Dear HWS Bristol Field House External Members:

At this time, Hobart and William Smith Colleges will continue with the policy of making Bristol Field House only available to current students, faculty, staff, and pre-approved on-campus summer groups.

We are working through the necessary steps to safely reopen our doors to outside groups and local community members and will announce that information as it becomes available.

Please email or call (315) 781-3901 with any additional questions.

We continue to thank you for your patience and cooperation.

Warm regards,

Judy Wentzel
Director of Recreation, Intramurals, & Fitness
