Students at Nichols can participate in 21 varsity programs at the Division III level of the NCAA. Twenty Nichols teams compete in the Commonwealth Coast Conference, and the women's ice hockey team competes in the Colonial Hockey Conference.

Varsity sports--indeed, all sports--at Nichols complement what students learn in the classroom. Club, varsity, and intramural sports provide vital teamwork and team-building experiences that hone students' abilities to plan, practice and execute personal and team goals.
