Outdoor Activities & Athletic Facilities

The information below was for reunion 2022. We will update this page for Reunion 2023 in the near future.

Indoor athletic facilities (fitness center, pool, gyms, and squash courts) unfortunately will not be available for use during Reunion per current college pandemic protocols. Please do enjoy any and all outdoor facilities at your leisure.

Williams’ outdoor athletic facilities — Cole Fields, the tennis courts, the track, and both turf fields at the Weston Athletic Complex — are open to everyone — students, faculty, staff, members of the Williamstown community, and guests and visitors. The College asks anyone using outside facilities or visiting the campus who is not vaccinated to please wear a mask when outdoors. Campus Safety will continue to unlock the paddle tennis courts daily at 8am and lock at 9pm, which is when the lights that illuminate the court shut off. Everyone will be expected to follow all public health protocols. To stay up to date, please continue to check the Massachusetts State and Williams College guidelines, including those pertaining to visitors and guests.

Pick up a Family Fun Guide at the Alumni Center.
