84 Lumber Arena (formerly The RMU Island Sports Center Ice 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

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.
