Bentley University Arena

Bentley University’s state-of-the-art multipurpose arena is the most environmentally sustainable in the U.S. and the first standalone ice arena to earn the LEED platinum certification, the highest possible rating, according to the U.S. Green Building Council.

The 76,000 square foot facility designed by Architectural Resources Cambridge, has a seating capacity of 2,000 seats for hockey and up to 3,400 for other community events. The Bentley Arena hosts the university’s NCAA Division I hockey team, as well as prominent university events such as career fairs, high-profile speakers, alumni events, and concerts. The arena uses the latest in green technology, anticipated to cut utility costs in half compared to other ice arenas of its size.
