Malkin Athletic Center is a 1,000-seat multi-purpose arena in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Originally known as the Indoor Athletic Center, it originally housed the Harvard Crimson men's basketball until they moved to the Lavietes Pavilion in 1982. It is named after Peter L. Malkin, who helped fund the refurbishment of the building in 1985. It currently houses the Harvard Fencing Team, Harvard Crimson men's volleyball, Harvard Crimson women's volleyball, and Harvard Crimson wrestling teams. Each year, the Harvard Invitational Shoryuhai Intercollegiate Kendo Tournament, or Shoryuhai (昇龍杯 Shōryuhai) is held at the Malkin Athletic Center.
