Agganis Arena is a 7,200-seat multi-purpose arena in Boston, Massachusetts, United States, on the campus of Boston University, built on the location of the former Commonwealth Armory. It is named after Harry Agganis, an outstanding football and baseball athlete for BU and the Boston Red Sox. He died at the age of 26, from a massive pulmonary embolism. The hockey rink is named Jack Parker Rink, after one of the most successful coaches in college hockey history. It is part of Boston University's John Hancock Student Village, which also includes dormitories and the university's five-story Fitness and Recreation Center.
It serves as a regional auditorium for large events, including ceremonies of other schools such as Berklee College of Music, musicals, awareness events and appearances by speakers, such as Barack Obama and Dave Chappelle.
It hosted the first rounds of the 2007 America East Conference men's basketball tournament, the 2011 finals of that tournament, and the 2009 Women's Frozen Four. The men's and women's basketball teams play games here when they are playing highly ranked teams. Otherwise, they play at Case Gym, otherwise known as The Roof, on Babcock Street. The arena hosted TNA Wrestling's anniversary show Slammiversary on June 2, 2013.
- As of January 30, 2009, Parker had 800 wins as head coach. Only three coaches have reached this number and he is the only one to do it all with a single team.
