Built in 1974 strictly for hockey, the 6,470-seat Clarence L. "Biggie" Munn Ice Arena is recognized as one of the finest collegiate hockey facilities in the country. It is constantly being upgraded and renovated with the latest additions being luxury boxes, club seating and a new press box, as well as new video boards and scoreboards. The newest addition, the Ron Mason Hall of History, was opened in 2022 and gives Spartan Hockey fans a look into the history of hockey at MSU while upgrading and adding to the resources available to the student athletes.
Built into the natural slope of the rolling terrain, the structure gives the impression of being underground, since no external walls are visible. Clear span roof trusses form an angular roof profile and help provide acoustic control within the arena. The building also is site of one of the largest planting projects on campus, enhancing the beauty of the facility. The surrounding area serves as a teaching and demonstration area for landscape architecture, botany and horticulture students.
