Halsey Field House is a multi-purpose arena at the United States Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland, with a seating capacity of 5,000. It was home to the Navy Midshipmen men's basketball team until the Alumni Hall opened in 1991. It is named after FADM William "Bull" Halsey, a World War II United States Navy commander.

Currently it is the home of the indoor track and field teams. It contains a 200-meter synthetic track, squash and tennis courts, a 65 tatami dojo for Aikido/Judo,[1] and a climbing wall.

The North Wing has five basketball courts, five squash courts, dressing rooms, a conditioning room, classrooms for physical education, athletic-gear storage, and office space for instructors.

The weight room is one of three "strength and conditioning facilities" at the academy.[2] With 5,500 square feet (510 m2), it serves men's and women's basketball, men's and women's crew, men's and women's swimming, and squash.[3]
