Dwyer Arena is a 2,100-seat hockey rink in Lewiston, New York. It is home to the Niagara University Purple Eagles men's and women's ice hockey teams, which play in College Hockey America. The building was built in 1996 and upgraded in 2000 and includes a practice rink, as well as receiving an upgrade to the rest of the facilities. The expansion was a result of a gift by Bob and Connie Dwyer, both 1965 graduates, who contributed $3 million for facilities upgrades. Seating was expanded in 2007 to bring the capacity to 2,100.
