The most awesome place to watch college hockey

We're big Pioneers fans, so it's no wonder we like it so much here. But it really is a very nice arena. They've got a great beer selection, plenty of food options (all of which... read more

Its a decent hockey arena but maybe not so great for basketball. It's hard to imagine that it didn't draw most of it's inspiration from the old DU Arena, what with the smaller seating section and press box on one side and the exaggerated incline on the other. The stands should have a higher angle so you are more on... More

They've got a great beer selection, plenty of food options (all of which accept credit cards by the way), and there really isn't a bad seat in the house. If you can, however, a seat on the ice...

Not a bad seat in the house. The parking is convenient and you can grab a bite to eat from inside. They use this place for several sports and entertainment events

The is a great arena on the campus of University of Denver. The arena is clean and well maintained. We enjoy the hockey games here, they do sell beer, wine and cocktails. Typical concession food other than the carved meat station which is located near section 15 on the concourse. We usually eat a nearby restaurant before the game but... More

A great facility for watching hockey. Denver is a good hockey town - and the DU Pioneers help that out. I'd rather watch a DU match here than an Avalanche game anywhere. The vibe just can't compare.

The venue is small and intimate for hockey games, but too large for basketball games since no one really attends! I love the fact that you can purchase adult beverages, and the venue food is decent, but better off hitting the restaurants around DU before the game.

I love college hockey and this is a great facility. We usually eat at nearby restaurants (ie. Spanky's) This year we finally ate the carved meat sandwich. Although the roast beef was still mooing, it was delicious! Oh and unlike many college venues alcohol (mixed drinks and beer) are gladly offered at the Hockey Games (not sure about other sports)....

Very Nice Facility, Excellent campus - very safe and clean. I enjoyed my experience and would recommend the Joy Ice skating ring to everyone young and old when in the area. Reasonably priced for the venue. Beautiful campus, especially at night.
