The East Lagoon near Altgeld Hall is free and open to all for ice skating.

The ice is checked by employees of the Grounds Department, which is in charge of the sign located on the south end of the lagoon. A green sign indicates it is safe to skate.

Skaters should always check the sign to ensure the ice is safe for skating. The rink is not attended, and skating is at your own risk.

Students, faculty, staff and the community can rent adult hockey and ice skates through the Adventure Center, located on the west side of the Student Recreation Center. More information on gear rentals and pricing is available online.

Skates can be rented from 3 to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and are available for day, weekend or week rentals.

For more information, call (815) 753-9423 or email [email protected].
