Our students work tremendously hard—and our 18 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. #GoNU!
Club and Intramural Sports
We boast more than 40 intramural and 30 club teams for students looking to get their competitive juices flowing outside of the varsity athletic scene. Sports offered include lacrosse, rugby, ultimate frisbee, and badminton, along with many, many others.
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 downloading the athletics iPhone app, following us on Twitter and Facebook, or subscribing to the Huskies Hotwire newsletter.
The popular Priority Points program is a great way to win Northeastern gear and other prizes—just for supporting the Huskies!
