The Patty ice arena, adjacent to the Patty Center and Student Recreation Center, features a full-sized ice rink used by the Nanook hockey team for practice, and other community groups such as youth hockey leagues and figure skating clubs. In 2006, approximately 2,000 square feet of new locker room space was built on the south side of the arena. New hockey boards and new flooring in the bench and bleachers area were also installed that year.
