Construction has begun on the Compton Family Center - a new, on-campus, two-rink ice facility designed to help meet the needs of the campus and regional community and the Notre Dame hockey program.
The main arena, with its traditional barrel vaulted roof supported by a series of bow trusses will have a capacity of approximately 5,000 patrons (seated and standing room combined) on two levels. The west (visitors) end of the arena will be reserved for student and hockey band seating on both levels. Club seating, general admission seating and the media center will also be located on the upper level. Standing room areas will be plentiful around the arena on both levels of the open concourse concept. The arena is scheduled to open in mid-October 2011. Read More
