The all-staff “War Room” is modeled after the war room within the Pentagon, and features a specially designed table capable of seating 22. There are six 55” TV screens in addition to an eight-foot projection screen, ensuring that all can easily watch film. The war room contains specially cut walnut flooring with a hand woven rug from Nepal resting on top.

Due to the specific design of the black glass walls, slanted LED lighting, and unique atmosphere within, Howie Long decided to call this section of the HDC “Area 51” after the famed top secret government area.


CP Corian lockers originating from Germany are featured within the locker room. There are absolutely no handles, and can be unlocked using a wall mounted monitor and pin codes. Each locker is equipped with USB ports as well as a cellphone charging station. HVAC technology is present in order to remove moist air, this air is not re-used. Player names, hometowns, and numbers can be found outside of the locker. The east end of the locker room contains four 55” TV screens capable of showing separate or identical programs. 31 shower pedestals can be found towards the “wet end” of the room.

Additional features of the locker room are a 1950 style barbershop, a mini-equipment room in with the players’ cubbies, and a nutrient bar to supply the Student Athletes.


A row of miniature mannequins is showcased immediately upon entry of the Hatfield-Dowlin Complex's lobby. The maquettes display the evolution of the University of Oregon's uniforms beginning in 1894 through 2012.

The walls of the complex are composed of matte glass with a black organic backing, all of which have been bathed in acid to aid in the fight against fingerprints.


The Marcus Mariota Heisman display was designed by Todd Van Horne from Nike to include no glass, encouraging visitors to take pictures and physically touch the trophy. At night, the shrine is lit up and can be seen from the courtyard.

Inspiration for the design arose from Marcus' Heisman speech, and the theme of the number eight is highlighted throughout. Models of the eight Hawaiian Islands are composed of marble granite composite, and the trophy itself sits atop eight layers.


Designed by the same team responsible for corporate dining at Nike and Google, the servery takes pride in the title as the "best training table in America."

Menu items and nutritional information are displayed daily upon TV monitors, while specials can be found written on writable, erasable, and magnetic surfaces. Graduate interns from reputable culinary art institutions are responsible for the top-of-the-line cuisine.

The kitchen area features a full salad bar, as well as to-go refrigerators for student-athletes who need to stay on the move. Neon signs line the front wall, displaying the mascots and logos of other rival Pac-12 schools.


The Hatfield-Dowlin Complex houses a hall dedicated to Bob and Jane Sanders. It contains fixed seating for 170, all fitted with Ferrari Leather as well as custom heating and cooling systems. Painted aluminum composes the ceiling, allowing for maximum acoustics to be achieved.

Towards the front of the hall lies a 30 foot retractable screen with blackout curtain, as well as a full teaching lectern.


The coach's reception area is pictured below. The space features an Oregon Duck football helmet display that showcases the progression of our headwear throughout the years.


Upon entering the HDC's player lounge, one will immediately notice the Italian lounge seating that rest on hand-woven rugs custom designed in Nepal. Custom graphics line the walls, and Portuguese slate composes the flooring. An observation deck grants student-athletes a view of the outdoor practice facilities, as well as the gorgeous environment that Eugene grants.

Placed throughout the room are interconnected TV clusters equipped with the latest game systems ranging from Xbox One's to Playstation 4's. Additional luxuries include hand-painted foosball tables, large ottomans, Zanotta bean bag chairs, as well as a custom-made pool table.


Oregon's weight room mezzanine features custom-made squat racks, as well as additional high tech lifting equipment. Covering the floor and olympic lifting platforms is Brazilian Epi, nicknamed "Iron Wood", and is one of the hardest and densest woods on the planet.

The Hatfield-Dowlin Complex's second floor also houses a two-lane 40 yard turf section that is electronically supported in order to measure a runner's foot strike as well as gait stride. There are only three similar tracks in existence.
