Munn Ice Arena
Check out the home of MSU hockey, the Munn Ice Arena.
The Munn Ice Arena is the home of Michigan State Spartan Hockey. It was built in 1974 as a hockey-only facility. Since then, it’s undergone renovations several times to keep improving facilities and give student athletes and hockey fans the best possible experience. This includes a complete replacement of the ice making equipment, updating the arena seating and ensuring ADA compliance, and adding private luxury boxes.
The ice arena seats almost 6,500 fans. If you’re coming to a game as a student, you’ll probably be sitting in the student section, called the Munnsters.
A training room, weight room, equipment room and player’s lounge are all located alongside the Spartan Hockey locker room. Open hockey practice is available and, during specific times, public skating and open figure skating are offered, too.
Plus, the building is the site of the largest planting project on campus. In fact, the surrounding area serves as a teaching and demonstration area for landscape architecture, botany and horticulture students. The pines outside of Munn are also steeped in history and tradition. If you’ve ever heard the “MSU Alma Mater Shadows” song, these are the pines mentioned in those lyrics!
“Beneath the pines we’ll gather”
