Starr Rink
Hamilton, NY

Tickets

  • Tickets cost $13 for reserved seats or $8 for general admission or children. Tickets are available online, or may be ordered from the Starr Rink box office (315-228-7600). Starr rarely sells out, but because the seating capacity is small we advise buying tickets ahead of time.

Directions

  • If using a GPS, enter 13 Oak Drive, Hamilton, NY.
  • From Troy: Take the NYS Thruway (I-90) West to Exit 31 (Utica). Follow NY-12 South to Sangerfield, then take US-20 West to NY-12B South (in Bouckville, about 11 miles). * NY-12B brings you directly into Hamilton. Drive through town, go by a pond on the left. Go through the light. Most of the college is on the left. Starr Rink is on the right, across from the Natatorium. If you go past the hospital you have gone too far.* Distance: 130 miles.
  • From Ithaca (Cornell): Get on NY-13, which runs through downtown Ithaca, and follow it north to Cortland. In Cortland, take I-81 North to Exit 15. Then follow US-20 East to Bouckville (about 35 miles) until it intersects NY-12B. Take NY-12B South and pick up the directions above at *. Distance: 80 miles.

Arena

  • Campus map: Starr Rink is in the Reid Athletic Center, on the left (west) side of route 12B.
  • Parking: Coming from downtown Hamilton, take the first right after Starr Rink for access to the free parking lot. There is also a small lot across the street from the rink.
  • Seating: Starr Rink seats 2,246. The rink staff will prohibit you from changing sections, but it is usually possible to change seats within your section. Be aware, though, that many Colgate fans don't arrive until well into the first period, so you may have to move a second time. The student section has bleacher seats, but other sections have comfortable individual fold-up seats. There is no rail to stand along.
  • Food: The single concession stand is located in the main lobby of the building and include hot dogs and snacks.

Restaurants

  • See http://www.colgate.edu/about/maps-travel-options/local-dining.
  • Sadly, our favorite Hamilton restaurant, Nichols & Beal, is no more. They are now under new management with a new name, No. 10 Tavern, and a new simpler menu, concentrating on burgers and sandwiches.
  • The Colgate Inn has the most extensive menu and is the most upscale restaurant in Hamilton. Its dining room is open until 10 pm, a rarity in Hamilton. After 10, your choices are basically McDonald's and Pizza Hut..
