The City of Worcester will host an evening of free ice skating on the Worcester Common Oval Ice Rink for college students on Saturday, Feb. 22 from 4 to 7 p.m. To skate, students must show a valid college ID or college Woo Card, which can also be swiped for Woo points. Skate rentals are available for $3 after a refundable $25 credit card or cash deposit.

The College is one of the community sponsors of the 12,000-square-foot rink behind City Hall, which offers skate rentals and concessions.  The rink opened for the season on Dec. 7, and offers public skating during the lunch hour, as well as on weekends and school vacations. The full schedule for the ice rink can be found on the city’s website.

Students who are interested in attending can register for transportation here. Buses will be leaving from the Hogan Campus Center and will provide free, round-trip transportation. For updated information about potential rink closures due to inclement weather or frigid conditions please call the Oval Hotline, (508) 929-0777.
