In April, Montclair State assumed ownership of Floyd Hall Arena, the popular ice skating arena located on campus.
Now known as the “Montclair State University Ice Arena,” the Little Falls facility houses two NHL-sized rinks as well as amenities for parties and camps. More than 750,000 people visit the arena each year for “learn to skate” programs, hockey and figure skating events, and open skating. The arena is also home to the University’s nationally ranked men’s and women’s ice hockey clubs, and used by the long-standing Montclair Hockey Club, area high schools and the North Jersey Figure Skating Club. It was a convenient training site for student Isadora Williams, who skated for Brazil in the 2018 Olympics in South Korea.
“The arena is a valued asset for the community and our faculty, staff and students,” says Vice President for Student Development and Campus Life Karen L. Pennington. “Because it is so popular, when Floyd Hall Enterprises proposed transferring ownership to us, this was an easy decision for the University to make.
