of students participate in varsity athletics
WPI has 20 varsity teams classified within the NCAA Division III. We enjoy membership in the ECAC, NEWMAC, FFC and the NECAC. WPI athletics has a long proud history and we have enjoyed our share of intercollegiate success in tournament, conference and national championships. We are equally proud of the accolades and awards bestowed each year on our student-athletes, including Scholar All-America, All-America, All-Region, All-New England and All-Conference honors. Visit the Varsity Athletics website.
Taking place during the traditional academic year (August-May), club sports give students the opportunity to join over 30 different sports teams ranging from ultimate Frisbee and rugby to ballroom dancing and pep band. Students are in charge of each team, thereby allowing students to develop and refine their leadership and organizational skills while working out, meeting new people, and having fun. Check out Club Sports on CampusLabs for a full list of teams, contact information, and forms.
Open to all members of the WPI community, the Intramural Sports program aims to provide safe, fair, and enjoyable competitive opportunities. Intramurals include such sporting activities as flag football, basketball, indoor soccer, and volleyball, as well as recreation programming activities like 3-point shootouts and spikeball.
