About

The St. Olaf Ice Arena opened on January 2, 2019. The arena is the home of the St. Olaf College men’s and women’s hockey teams, which compete in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) as a member of NCAA Division III. The facility has 804 stadium chairs and standing room for another 150.

The arena hosts college activity classes, intramural sports, club hockey, club figure skating, arena curling, open skates and public events. When the space is not being used by the St. Olaf community, it is available for rent for youth and high school hockey, figure skating clubs, other ice-related activities and for dry floor events when the ice is out.

The facility sits in the original Skoglund Fieldhouse, which opened in 1968. Construction began on the project in February 2018.
