In the fall of 2015, University Liggett School completed a stunning expansion of its outdoor athletic facilities, opening the largest complex of artificial turf fields at any high school in the country.
The state-of-the-art complex features the nation’s largest single installation of synthetic turf athletic fields that support football, baseball, softball, soccer, lacrosse and field hockey.
The 30,200 square foot John and Marlene Boll Campus Center was opened in September 2018. The Boll Campus Center is a hub of activity at University Liggett School, with community gathering space for students and alumni events. The building features a 14,500 square foot gymnasium complete with a collegiate floor, a fitness center and weight room, student locker rooms, storage space and eight basketball hoops. The building’s signature feature – the glass curtain wall – features more than 3,400 square feet of glass facing Cook Road.
Mccann Ice Arena
The Francis J. McCann Ice Arena includes 39,000 feet of space, state-of-the-art mechanical systems, expanded locker rooms and training room facilities, and seating for 300 spectators. The building is in use throughout the year - including the summer months - as teams from the Grosse Pointe Hockey Association, Liggett alumni, other area hockey teams, and the residents of the City of Grosse Pointe Woods use the arena and its facilities.
More importantly, we use the facility daily throughout the school year, for skating, as part of the lower and middle school physical education program, and for team play by our middle school teams, and the upper school boys' and girls' varsity ice hockey teams.
