Munn Ice Arena

“Front door of Munn Ice Arena”

By providing a “front door,” Munn Ice Arena immediately introduces a positive image for the arena and the hockey program.  Renovations to Munn Ice Arena not only will attract elite student-athletes, but provide a venue that is inviting, comfortable, and safe for fans.  Aligning with Michigan State University’s mission of sustainability, MSU Athletics will convert the playing surface from a Freon-based playing surface to a more environmentally-friendly ammonia/glycol system.


  • Installation of large sections of self-rising seats to replace bleachers
  • Adding new display technology (video boards, ribbon boards) to improve fan experience
  • Installation of a more environmentally-friendly playing surface
  • Elevate hockey operations/offices to above ground level
  • Improve locker facilities, fitness, and weight rooms to match that of competing peer institutions
  • Adding a recruiting room/NHL recognition
  • Bring facility in compliance with ADA
