The Gene Polisseni Center is an ice arena that resides on the Rochester Institute of Technology campus in Rochester, New York. Ground was broken for the project on October 19, 2012,[2] the arena was officially dedicated on September 18, 2014, and the first hockey game was played in the arena on September 29, 2014 by the RIT women’s hockey team.

The new arena is the home of the varsity ice hockey teams at RIT, replacing the Frank Ritter Memorial Ice Arena. Ritter Arena will not be demolished, and continues to be used as an ice arena. The Polisseni Center serves primarily as a hockey arena (for both RIT varsity hockey and local youth programs), and it will also be a multi-purpose venue. The Polisseni Center is built not far from Ritter Arena on the RIT campus, south of the Student Alumni Union, replacing portions of parking lot U.

How many universities have TWO ice arenas?!
