Sports Field

In response to student feedback, NYU Florence created a multi-sport field on campus between Villa Natalia and Villa Ulivi. NYU Florence utilizes the field for events, tournaments, and clubs, but students are also welcome to use this field on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:

September: 9:00am-7:00pm

October-March: 9:00am-5:00pm

April-August: 9:00am-8:00pm

The field is equipped for soccer, tennis, volleyball and basketball. The boundary lines on the field are regulation for tennis and five-a-side soccer. There are no boundary lines for volleyball or basketball, and the basketball hoops are not spaced at regulation distance. Sports equipment may be signed out at the Villa Natalia reception.

A few guidelines apply to the use of the field:

  • Anyone using the field must wear appropriate footwear (no cleats or high heels permitted, as these could damage the turf).

  • Smoking on or around the sports field is strictly prohibited.

  • Trash must be disposed of in the receptacles provided.

  • No personal items or sports equipment should be left at the field.

  • Students using the net are responsible for storing it in the appropriate storage container when finished.

  • Chairs, benches, and other furnishings are prohibited in the field perimeter.

  • Any issues with the turf, nets, or equipment should be reported to the Facilities Office or security staff immediately.

  • Access to the sports field before 9:00am or after closing hours is prohibited.

  • Students may use the sports field at their own risk. In case of injury, students should contact the Office of Student Life at +39-055-5007450 (after hours follow the prompts to reach the staff member on call).
