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.

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 Eastern States Collegiate Hockey League.
