The Falcons have undergone a couple of uniform changes since the start of the 2010–2011 season. In accordance with the new Bentley brand, the Falcon's moved away from the white, navy and gold color scheme. The first switch made was to their road uniform. They moved from navy blue, with gold "Bentley" lettering, and white trim to a black uniform with a navy blue B in the middle and white trim. The new home uniforms were unveiled in the 2013–2014 season, and are still their current home uniforms. They are white with the Bentley back and grey B in the middle, navy blue and black trim, and black numbers/names on jerseys on the back. The new home jerseys were unveiled at Frozen Fenway on 12/28/2014. To start the 2014–2015 season, the Falcon's unveiled another new road uniform. This, their current road jersey, is black with navy blue "Bentley" lettering across the front, using white and navy trim with the Bentley crest on the shoulder. Both uniforms use black helmets, and black pants with a navy blue and white trim.
The Falcons play at the John A. Ryan Arena in Watertown, MA. It is roughly 10 minutes from the Bentley main campus, with a capacity of about 1,200 fans. In 2011–2012, the arena constructed a new press box for media outlets. For the 2012–2013 season, the Bentley locker room was fully renovated, and a players' lounge installed overlooking the arena with the head coach's corner office.
On July 7, 2016 it was officially announced that Bentley would break ground on a new state of the art on campus arena. The multi-purpose facility is expected to be completed by January, 2018 and will have a capacity of 2000 for hockey games.
