The on-campus home for the University of Connecticut Men's and Women's ice hockey teams is the Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum, which opened in the fall of 1998.
The Forum was constructed as part of the UCONN 2000 commitment by the State of Connecticut to help rebuild, renew, and enhance the campuses of the University of Connecticut. The Forum is one of 62 different projects planned under the 10-year, $1 billion UCONN 2000 umbrella which was originally approved by the State of Connecticut Legislature near the conclusion of its 1995 session and signed into law by former Connecticut Governor John G. Rowland. UConn's new ice arena replaced the open air UConn Ice Rink, which had served as Connecticut Ice Hockey's home since the early 1960s.
UConn Women's head coach Chris Mackenzie and UConn Men's head coach Mike Cavanaugh and their staffs are housed in offices located in the Arena.Public General Skate and "Uconn Student Only" Skating Schedule in Excel Format
