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.

For the men’s program, 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 428 Friar victories and a .608 winning percentage. At tournament time, either ECAC, Hockey East or NCAA, Providence has an impressive 30-13 mark in Schneider. The Friars’ complete 44-year record stands at 428-249-61.

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 as well as the men’s lacrosse program. 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.
