Thompson Arena



Thompson Ice Arena is one of two Dartmouth sports facilities designed by the Italian structural engineer Pier Luigi Nervi, known popularly as the "poet in concrete" in tribute to the buildings he designed for the Rome Olympics. Thompson Arena is located just across South Park Street from Leverone Field House, the other Nervi-designed building. Built in 1975, the 83,600 square foot building is home to the Big Green's Men's and Women's ice hockey teams and seats 3,500 spectators. Thompson also contains Smoyer Lounge, dressing rooms and training facilities for the field hockey and Men's and Women's soccer teams that practice and play on nearby Chase Field and Burnham Field.
