Over a period of many years, the athletic facilities at Vassar College were located at a number of locations throughout the campus. Based on the results of earlier planning efforts, the athletics master plan was developed in conjunction with the expansion of the Walker Fieldhouse and new gymnasium. The master planning process included extensive approvals as required by the Town of Poughkeepsie and community organizations.

As part of the final Master Plan, Prentiss Field was targeted as the location for all the outdoor varsity team competition and practice fields. New support facilities and infrastructure were planned along the fields, including a satellite locker room building for home and visiting team rooms.

Michael Winstanley AIA AICP was the Design Principal for this assignment during his tenure as Vice President at Cannon Design.
