Northwestern's home football games are played at Ranger Field, located in the center of a 30-acre tract just northwest of the main campus. The field was used first in 1969 after the completion of a $750,00 project to provide the Ranger team and football fans with the most modern facilities. The stadium has a seating capacity of 6,000, with the space divided equally between east and west sides. Parking for 600 cars are provided in the area immediately adjacent to the stadium.

A press box on the west side provides working area for media, statisticians, scouts and spotters. A concession stand also is operated on that side. A the north end of the playing field, a building houses the locker rooms, equipment storage, public restrooms and team store.

Gates for access to Ranger Field are located at the northeast and southwest corners of the area.

In September 2007, President Janet Cunningham announced the school's intentions to improve the football and baseball venues to meet the needs of a modern-day collegiate athletic program. Northwestern has termed this athletic renaissance the Vision for Victory Campaign. Projects included as part of this campaign include a new football locker room, which will include; space for athletic training and strength training facilities, a new press box and public use facility, permanent seating and new dugouts at the baseball field, and a new indoor practice facility four our baseball and softball teams.
