Munn Ice Arena has been home to Michigan State hockey since opening its doors on November 1, 1974. The arena is undergoing an $18.8 million renovation project that will be completed in the fall. The expansion project will provide new areas to benefit student-athletes, including a locker room, state-of-the-art weight room and training areas, hydrotherapy pools, shooting bays, and a players' lounge. Additionally, new offices for coaches and staff will be moved above ground, and an expanded concourse will connect a Hall of Honor highlighting individual and team accomplishments to an enhanced pro-apparel shop.

Munn Ice Arena was home to the NCAA's longest consecutive regular-season sell-out streak. On Dec. 19, 1985, Michigan State produced a sell-out crowd versus Northern Michigan University. Michigan State went on to sell-out 323 consecutive regular season home games. The streak ended on Oct. 15, 2004 when Munn failed to fill to capacity for a game against St. Lawrence University.
