Since the program’s inception in 1972, Miami’s hockey program has been on a steady ascension toward perennial national ranking among the NCAA Division I elite.  The Goggin is a 24-hour operation hosting early morning practice to late night student activity. The facility boasts 16 locker room pairings to allow for both dedicated home team accommodations, and a steady rotation of incoming and out-going teams. Home locker rooms for both the men’s hockey team and women’s synchronized skating team are professional quality, and include team lounge space. The Arena is intimate and raucous on game day, yet seamlessly fits into Miami’s Georgian campus aesthetic.
