Ice Arena Renovation

Ice Arena Renovation

A feasibility study for the aging Ice Arena was conducted including options for renovation and/or construction. Taking all into consideration, the best solution is to utilize a new refrigeration system and ice mat. These will be installed until campus can determine the next steps with the goal of a new facility or larger renovation.

Currently, the ice arena is set to close Friday, March 17, 2017 and reopen the start of the fall semester.

The new refrigeration system is much more efficient and has an 8-10 year life expectancy. The new ice mat contains all piping and could be moved if need be.

Renovations include:

  • New refrigeration unit
  • New ice mat
  • New rubber flooring around rink
  • New dasherboard system
  • New lobby lighting and flooring
