History

Function
Built on the South Athletic Field and measuring 114,365 square-ft., Romney Fieldhouse provided the first ice rink for public use to the Oswego community. It officially opened to the public on February 1, 1963, charging 50 cents per person, or about $4 today. After the ice arena opened on campus, Romney was transformed into a facility for the college’s track and lacrosse teams during the winter months, as well as some intramural sports.

Namesake
The fieldhouse was named in honor of Golden Romney, the head of health and physical education in the 1930s and ‘40s and helped design the college’s first ice rink which would be in the fieldhouse.
