Hobey Baker Memorial Rink is a 2,092-seat hockey arena in Princeton, New Jersey. It is home to the Princeton University Tigers men's and women's ice hockey teams as well as the venue for club and intramural hockey teams, intramural broomball, figure skating and recreational skating.
It is the only ice skating rink on the Princeton University campus. It is named in honor of former Princeton star, Hobart A.H. "Hobey" Baker, '14. Baker was a football and hockey star who died shortly after World War I.
In December 1921, it was decided to build an on-campus arena for the hockey team, and to name it after Baker. Efforts to modernize the arena began in the mid-1970s with major improvements including the addition of locker rooms, a skate sharpening room and a stick storage room in 1981, a new scoreboard and lighting improvements in 1984 and a renovation of the roof in 2002. It is now the second oldest arena still in use in college hockey, behind Matthews Arena at Northeastern University.
