The War Memorial at Oncenter, originally the Onondaga War Memorial, is a 6,230-seat multi-purpose arena in Downtown Syracuse, New York. It is part of the Oncenter Complex. Built in 1951, it featured the first poured-in-place concrete roof in the U.S.

The War Memorial is home to the Syracuse Crunch Ice hockey team. Previous teams to call the War Memorial home included the NBA's Syracuse Nationals and several now-defunct American Hockey League teams. It hosted the NCAA Frozen Four in 1967 and 1971.
