The Augsburg Ice Arena is unique among Division III colleges in Minnesota and the nation in that it is a two-rink facility with year-round ice. It is also one of only three on-campus ice arenas in the Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Augsburg Ice Arena complex is used extensively, not only by the college's men's and women's ice hockey teams, but also by the Twin Cities community as well. Community groups, youth and recreational sports teams, figure skating clubs, and recreational skaters use the two-rink facility virtually every day of the year.
The bleachers are fully compliant with current safety and Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirements. A ramp takes you up to the bleachers, and there are several "cutouts" for our patrons using wheelchairs. The ice sheet measures 200-feet long by 85-feet wide, the "NHL" standard for ice hockey ("Olympic" ice sheets are 200-by-100). The dasher boards and glass were replaced during the 2000 renovation project with new, NHL-standard boards and safety plexiglass. Large, spacious lockers are available for each player, and there is a video and audio system set up for players and coaches to use in training.
