UConn’s new $48M hockey arena, set for completion early next year, named after Toscano family

A new $48 million ice hockey arena at the University of Connecticut in Storrs, which has been under construction since last April, is set to open in January 2023 and will be named after Board of Trustees Chairman Dan Toscano and his family. The new arena will have a capacity of 2,600. The environmentally sustainable design makes the facility as efficient as possible in energy and water use, the university said. The Toscanos have invested toward scholarships and awards to help students across the school, and have donated money for capital projects to support the basketball, baseball, ice hockey, soccer and lacrosse teams. The new arena is next to the existing Mark Edward Freitas Ice Forum in the athletics district along Jim Calhoun Way.
