Renovations:

Opened in 1973, Schneider Arena recently underwent a massive renovation project that culminated in a Grand Reopening on Sept 27, 2013. The eight-month renovation project turned Schneider into one of finest on-campus facilities in the country. The Grand Reopening celebration included a ribbon cutting ceremony and a blessing of the building, featuring President Rev. Brian J. Shanley, O.P. '80, Athletics Director Bob Driscoll, men's hockey Head Coach Nate Leaman and women's hockey Head Coach Bob Deraney.

The renovation project was completed in just under eight months and included a 30,000 square-foot addition. Highlights of the addition and renovation include a new atrium, ticket office, concession stands, coaches offices, shooting room, locker rooms, meeting rooms, athletic training room, press box, five luxury suites, dasher boards, glass, video boards, video ribbon boards, scoreboards, a renovated Friends of Friar Room and a strength and conditioning facility.

History:

Schneider Arena was dedicated and is named in memory of the late Reverend Herman D. Schneider, O.P., the founder of the Friars' highly successful hockey program and a long-time member of the school's faculty.

Since its opening night win, a 1-0 decision over the University of Pennsylvania on September 24, 1973, Schneider Arena has been the home of 402 Friar victories and a .599 winning percentage. Among those 362 wins are 26 post season successes. At tournament time, either ECAC, Hockey East or NCAA, Providence has an impressive 26-13 mark in Schneider. The Friars' complete 42-year record stands at 402-246-61.

Built at a cost of $1.8 million dollars in 1973, Schneider Arena also serves as the home of PC's women's hockey team and also houses the men's lacrosse team.

Schneider Arena is one of Providence College's buildings that is in constant use. It serves the needs of the men's and women's hockey programs, the Providence College club hockey team and intramurals are also played at the Arena. The building also serves as the home of many of Rhode Island's youth and high school hockey teams as well as junior hockey programs.
