Varsity Sports

Our students work tremendously hard—and our 19 Division I athletic teams in Boston play even harder. Cheer on Northeastern’s men’s and women’s ice hockey as they go for the Beanpot or catch a basketball game at historic Matthews Arena. Our teams are among the most successful in New England and host some of the biggest collegiate events each year. #HowlinHuskies!
