The Department of Intercollegiate Athletics provides hundreds of student-athletes a rewarding experience, an integral and valued component of their Maryland education.
Currently a member of the Atlantic Coast Conference, Maryland will join the Big 10 Conference starting in the summer of 2014.
Maryland is one of only three NCAA Division I institutions to have won national championships in football, men’s basketball and women’s basketball. From field hockey and wrestling to soccer and lacrosse (men’s and women’s), Maryland is a perennial championship contender.
Our student-athletes compete in some of the finest athletic facilities anywhere, including the Comcast Center, the recently renovated University of Maryland Golf Course and Capital One Field at Byrd Stadium, with its new state-of-the art turf surface.
