There's a Flyer in Each of Us

Whether it's on the court or in the stands, everyone is a Flyer. When you experience it for the first time, you'll know why Sporting News named our fans the best in the nation — and why we've earned a consistent top-30 national ranking in fan attendance.

The Flyers compete at the NCAA Division I level and distinguish themselves nationally. Our basketball teams reached the Elite Eight in 2014 (men) and 2015 (women). And 10 teams have advanced to the NCAA postseason in the last decade!

We Are UD

Flyer Faithful

Watching from the stands, our fans show their spirit with cheerful ferocity. But never is this more present than at basketball games at UD Arena, where Flyer pride reaches a fever pitch. We consistently rank in the top 30 in men's basketball attendance nationally and lead the A-10 in fan support.

Intramural and Club Sports

Club sports and intramurals are crowd-pleasers at UD, and nearly 60 percent of our students participate. From volleyball to lacrosse, ice hockey to Ultimate Frisbee, our students field hundreds of teams in a wide variety of sports, even dodgeball. So sign up, and watch out.


From a rock climbing wall, to basketball courts, to fitness classes, the 125,470-square-foot RecPlex has everything you need to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Here, you'll also find the Aquatic Center, which offers a competition pool, leisure pool, diving well and a whirlpool.

Outdoor Education

A little fresh air can make a big difference in your education. Through group-based challenges that test you physically and mentally, you'll forge new friendships, gain confidence and cultivate leadership skills.

Stuart Field

One of the largest turf fields in the country, Stuart Field is where most club sports and intramural games are held. And when the field isn't in use, it's the perfect place to enjoy an impromptu game with friends.
