Uppsala Arena is a planned multi-purpose indoor arena in Uppsala, Sweden. It is scheduled to open as early as 2017. Once completed, it will become the ice hockey team Almtuna IS's home arena. It will have a capacity of 8,500 people during ice hockey games and 10,000 people during concerts.

There have been concerns that building the arena next Gränby centrum might destroy the habitat of newts. The slope where the arena is planned is thought to function as an dwelling place for newts during winter and is therefore included in a consideration zone (Swedish: hänsynsområde) for newts. Number of small dams have been built in the area previously to avoid the already threatened newts from disappearing from the zone.
