“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
