Opened in 2015, Morris Williams Track and Field Stadium is located on the west side of Kennedy Tower, sharing the press box with Koskinen Stadium. It is the new home to Duke Track and Field.

The track features an eight-lane BSS 1000 track surface, constructed by Beynon Sports. Encompassing the track is a walkway, allowing spectators to view any event in the stadium, and bleachers are located next to the finish line. For field events, two long/triple jump runways are located inside the home straight with sand pits on both sides to accommodate changes in wind. Inside the back straight are two pole vault runways, with two additional runways located in the D-area. The D-area will also hold dual high jump pits. The infield also accommodates all throwing events, boasting two shot put areas, a javelin runway, and a combined hammer and discus cage. Protective nets have been placed along the long/triple jump and pole runways for added safety.

Williams Track and Field complex is served by Kennedy Tower, an 11,000 square-foot facility featuring a camera deck and press facilities facing both Williams Track and Field Complex and Koskinen Stadium to support videography. The building includes a hospitality suite.
