Walter Brown Arena

With a capacity of 3,806, the Walter A. Brown Arena Memorial Skating Pavilion has served as the home of Boston University hockey since the 1971-72 season and the women’s ice hockey program since the 2005-06 campaign.

With the men’s team move to Agganis Arena in January 2005, Walter Brown Arena is one of the few on-campus venues in the country dedicated solely to women’s ice hockey.

Through the 2013-14 season, the women’s ice hockey team had compiled an 96-37-13 record at Walter Brown Arena.

In the summer of 2010, the arena underwent a complete renovation of the floor and ice surfaces, which is part of a phased renovation plan that will bring an improved look and experience to the historic arena in the coming years.

The rink has a glassed-in press box that can accommodate approximately 30 members of the media. In addition to hosting the Terriers, the rink has been the site of Boston University basketball games, concerts, professional tennis and other special events.
