Athletics and Recreation

There's a Flyer in each of us.

Whether it's on the court, in the stands or in the classroom, Flyers rise to every challenge. Competing at the NCAA Division I level in the Atlantic 10, our teams experience success year-round, including a run to the Elite Eight in the 2014 NCAA men's and 2015 NCAA women's basketball tournaments. On game days, the friendly Dayton community becomes a rowdy nightmare for opposing schools. And when our student athletes are not hitting homeruns and three-pointers, they're hitting the books — placing the UD athletic program among the top 10 in the country for academic performance.

UD Arena

The UD Arena is one of the nation's premier college basketball facilities, and the Flyers have ranked nationally in the top 35 in men's basketball attendance every season since the Arena opened in 1969. UD leads the Atlantic 10 in fan attendance and continues to grow its fan base.
