Current Status of Morningside Campus South Lawns

Our overall goal for lawn access and lawn care is to maximize access to the lawns for the University community while maintaining the campus’s natural beauty.  Lawns throughout campus are available for passive recreational use and are reservable for events

For South Lawns, Hamilton Lawn and Furnald Lawn, we aim to always have at least one large lawn and one small lawn open during non-inclement weather days.

(The work order and survey dashboards provided above are actively updated and include data from the past 90 days.)
