Dwyer Ice Arena (1996)
The Dwyer Ice Arena is named for Bob and Connie Dwyer, members of the Class of 1965, who, in 1998, announced a gift of $3 million to expand the existing twin-pad ice complex and hockey program. Ground was broken for the facility in August 1995, and opening ceremonies were held on May 10, 1996, the year Niagara University’s men’s team entered Division I hockey. The women’s team began play in 1998.
The 2,100-seat facility houses two regulation size rinks, a pro shop, concession area, training rooms, climate-controlled premium seating area and a presidential suite. Open skating is available to NU students throughout the year.
In recent years, Dwyer Arena has hosted the Buffalo Sabres Development Camp and the IIHF World Junior hockey Championships.
