Ready to break a sweat?
Learn about our Division I athletic teams and our club and intramural sports.
Our students work tremendously hard—and our 19 Division I athletic teams 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!

We have three state-of-the-art fitness centers on campus to help students maintain a healthy lifestyle:
For rock climbing, basketball, and fitness classes, you’ll use the Marino Recreation Center. The center also boasts three floors of fitness equipment, free weights, weight machines, and a suspended running track.
If you’re interested in racquetball, swimming laps or playing a little golf you’ll frequent the Cabot Center. This center also has indoor facilities for volleyball, tennis, and soccer, as well as a running track.
And if you want to play a little squash, you’ll go to the Badger and Rosen SquashBusters Facility, which houses eight squash courts and 52 workout stations. It also features a spectacular view of the Boston skyline.
If you’re not able to see the Huskies in action, you can show your support by keeping up to date!
You don’t have to take the field to be a Husky. Our fans are an integral part of our athletic program’s success. We want to see you out there, cheering our men and women on as they compete for the pride of our university. NUHuskies.com has up-to-date information about every one of our 17 Division 1 teams including current rosters, schedules, statistics, and more.
