Clifton Daggett Gray Athletic Building



Intramural and varsity sports, practice, and multipurpose events facility

The Clifton Daggett Gray Athletic Building, known to most on campus as Gray Cage, is Bates’ second-largest indoor athletic facility. Before the construction of Merrill Gymnasium, the Cage was used for indoor track events and athletic practices. Renovated in 1992, it now houses a large, rubberized, multipurpose surface used for intramural sports, indoor team practices, and large concerts and events.

The multipurpose Clifton Gray Athletic Building, or Gray Cage, has hosted the Bates labyrinth, a canvas walking mat that serves as a place for meditation and contemplation.
