Colonials Arena (formerly The RMU Island Sports Center Ice Arena and later the 84 Lumber Arena) is a 1,200-seat ice hockey rink located at the RMU Island Sports Center, accessible via exit 65 of Interstate 79[1] in the Pittsburgh suburb of Neville Island in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, United States. The RMU Island Sports Center was built in 1998, and houses several ice and inline skating rinks, a golf range, a miniature golf course, athletic fields, a strength and fitness center, and a pro shop. Robert Morris University and 84 Lumber reached a deal by which 84 Lumber would receive naming rights as of March 21, 2012. The arena later dropped the 84 Lumber name before the 2017-18 season and reverted to being known as the Colonials Arena at the RMU Island Sports Center.

It is home to the Robert Morris Colonials men's and women's NCAA Division I ice hockey teams competing in Atlantic Hockey and College Hockey America respectively, as well as RMU's club hockey team competing at the ACHA Division I level in the College Hockey Mid-America conference (CHMA) and various local youth hockey programs. In addition, it is home to the Pittsburgh Curling Club.

The arena served as the former home of the Pittsburgh Forge Junior-A NAHL team, which moved to Toledo, Ohio in 2003.
