Compton Family Ice Arena, South Bend

Fun & Games · Sports Complex
The Compton Family Ice Arena is a 5,022-seat, two-rink ice facility in Notre Dame, Indiana on the campus of the University of Notre Dame. The arena saw its first game on October 21, 2011. The ice arena replaced the 2,857-seat rink in the north dome of the Edmund P. Joyce Center.

It is named in honor of former San Jose Sharks part-owners Kevin and Gayla Compton, whose gift led funding for the project.
The new ice arena is located south of the Joyce Center, just north of Edison Road, and just west of where the new Irish track and field facility is being constructed. The majority of the general public arena seating is of the chair-back variety. The facility includes two sheets of ice (one of them Olympic-sized), with limited seating availability for the second sheet. Offices, locker room, and training facilities for the Notre Dame hockey program will be located within the facility. The weight room within the building will be available for use by all Fighting Irish varsity athletes. Eight auxiliary locker rooms will be available for campus and community use of the facility.

  • Visited for a ND hockey game. Good view anywhere and lots of selection for food. It was neat to walk around and read about the history of the team. After the first period there was an announcement that anyone standing could find an open seat to sit in. Awesome concept.
  • This place it top notch. Not a bad seat anywhere. They have Ben's pretzels. Yum.... Great Hockey program too- top notch boys playing every year. Great job coaches and staff!
