LaBahn Arena, opened in 2012, is home to the UW-Madison Women's Hockey Team.

It is a tri-level complex that includes the following:
  • 90' by 200' ice sheet for men's and women's hockey practice and women's competition, with seating for 2,273 spectators
  •  Men's and women's hockey team locker rooms and a visiting team locker room 
  • Women's hockey office suite and associated support spaces 
  • Locker and team room functions for the men's and women's swimming programs 
  • A connecting skywalk to the Southeast Recreation Facility (SERF) 
  • Minor renovation within SERF to accommodate circulation between the pool and the swimming teams' new locker suites
  • Underground connection to the Kohl Center 
  • Relocation of the men's basketball locker suite to space vacated by the men's hockey locker suite at the Kohl Center; expansion of training room facilities, and expansion of laundry/equipment-issue facilities to accommodate the additional occupants of the complex 
Key in the creation of the facility was bringing the Badger hockey and swimming teams to a centralized campus location for practice, competition and student services such as academics and sports medicine.

The total cost of the project was $27.9 million, with two-thirds of the cost coming from gifts to UW Athletics and the remainder coming from bonding.
