  • The world's oldest ice hockey arena and one of the nation's exemplary athletic facilities is Matthews Arena, a repolished gem named for George J. Matthews, Class of '56, and his wife, the late Hope M. Matthews. The original home of the Boston Bruins, the Celtics and the Beanpot, the Arena has served as the center of Northeastern hockey since the program's inception for the 1929-30 season.

    The Campus Recreation department utilizes Matthews for its intramural hockey and broomball programs as well as some club sports. We also offer ice time for open skate: you must provide your own skates and no hockey equipment is allowed.
