The USM Ice Arena opened in the fall of 1998, and features the only Olympic-size ice surface in the state of Maine. It is home ice for USM's men's and women's ice hockey programs and is also home to other area hockey teams.
The Ice Arena facility includes a refreshment area with tables in a heated area behind the spectator stands and overlooking the rink. There are team and club dressing rooms on the lower level.
Also looking out over the rink is the Alumni Reception Center in which alumni functions are held as well as other meetings of organizations from on and off campus.
Public skating starts September 23 and will be available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 10:00 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. until December 10. There will be no public skate time on Wednesday, November 26. USM students and staff are admitted free with their ID card. Rates are $5 for adults, $3 for students and seniors (55+), and kids under 5 are free.
