Athletics, Intramurals, and Recreation

The Department of Athletics, Intramurals and Recreation fosters an important and integral part of the NYU experience. We work with student groups, faculty, administrators, and community partners to create a campus environment in which students can flourish intellectually, athletically, and personally.

Our NCAA Division III varsity teams, club sports, intramurals, and recreational programs complement each other by meeting the needs of different students and contribute to the development of such intangible attributes as leadership, initiative, and a passion for working cooperatively toward a goal.

In addition to our work developing student-athletes, our department operates NYU’s athletic facilities in Manhattan: the Jerome S. Coles Sports Center and the Palladium Athletic Facility.
